Current Volunteer Opportunities - Care Kits



Help PATH build relationships with our neighbors experiencing homelessness!
Assemble “Care Kits” that include new travel sized hygiene items and non-perishable snacks. PATH street outreach teams distribute the Care Kits to our neighbors experiencing homelessness and use them as a tool to build relationships.



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.


Drop-off Location: Care Kits are accepted at PATH Metro LA and West LA locations. 

Please note: Drop offs must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance.


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.
