Emergency Tarps and Tents for Skid Row
Organized by: Dave Bullock
El Niño is upon us and people are dying from exposure in Skid Row. My long time friend and Skid Row community activist, Don Garza, reached out to me for help. He has been walking the streets of Skid Row before and during the rain and providing tarps and tents to people sleeping on the streets with just blankets. His mission took on a major sense of urgency with the exposure death of Barbra Brown during the last storm. She died soaked and cold in the rain without a tent or a tarp to protect her.
The community needs our support to raise money for more tarps and tents. Any donation helps, the money will be spent directly on buying tents and tarps.
- Every donation of $10 will provide a large tarp which will provide needed shelter for a single person
- Every donation of $40 will provide a tent for 3 people along with their belongings
Rain is coming so please help however you can, time is of the essence. We will be pushing to provide more tents and a few days before every El Niño storm over the next few months. Please also consider sharing this fundraiser to your friends.
