Safe Place for Youth (SPY) is a nonprofit near and dear to the Westchester Rotary Club. SPY works with homeless youth in Venice and provides three core areas of service provision: street outreach, drop-in center and case management. The drop-in center provides food, clothing, hygiene products, Internet access, mail and phone services as well as mental health, health and wellbeing programs.
A couple of weeks ago, SPY’s storage unit was damaged by an enormous fire and eight firefighters were injured fighting the blaze. The non-profit lost their supply of new underwear, socks, and warm winter clothing that the homeless youth desperately need especially since the winter months are approaching.
The Westchester Rotary Club is holding a donation drive at Sifted:LA in Westchester (6259 W. 87th Street, Westchester, CA 90045) on Saturday, December 6th from 11am-7pm. Please contact us if you are able to donate any gently used winter clothing, new underwear, socks, sleeping bags, warm blankets and hygiene products or you may also make monetary donations to the Westchester Rotary Foundation and the funds will be forwarded to the SPY.Christa R.
