Current Volunteer Opportunities - Care Kits



Help PATH build relationships with our neighbors experiencing homelessness!
Care Kits include new travel sized hygiene items and non-perishable snacks for our neighbors living on the streets.
PATH street outreach teams distribute Care Kits to our neighbors experiencing homelessness and use them as an
engagement tool to build relationships while connecting our unhoused neighbors to housing resources.



Goal: This a perfect opportunity to get a group directly involved in making a difference! This opportunity would involve you or your group hosting a drive or purchasing hygiene items and non-perishable snacks, and then assembling the items into 1-gallon sized plastic bags.


Size: Open to Individual Volunteers or Volunteer Groups


Location: Kits are assembled off site at a location of your choice. For large group activities, please reach out to to coordinate staff support if needed.


Scheduling a Drop-off: Care Kits are accepted at PATH Metro LA and West LA locations. All donation drop-offs must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of your drop-off date. Unscheduled donations will not be accepted.To schedule a drop-off, please submit your preferred drop-off location, date, and time using the form below:
In-Kind Donation Inquiry Form

Our team will follow-up by email to confirm your drop-off time and to provide additional drop-off instructions, including the drop-off locations.


Clients: PATH Outreach teams use Care Kits as the initial engagement tool for building relationships and connecting with individuals experiencing homelessness. Care Kits not only provide essential hygiene items, they also serve to foster trust and a means to access life-saving services such as permanent housing and case management.


Budget: Costs vary depending on a volunteer’s capacity, typically $5-$10 per kit.
