Starting in 2010, the F@@ has done an Annual Clothing Giveaway on the morning of Xmas day on Skid Row. Our goal is to help the most downtrodden improve their lives while also modeling and developing the practice of mutual aid as an alternative to state-run institutions.
To donate, just place the clothing in a plastic bag and contact us. Also, please make sure any donated clothing is clean and donation worthy–tattered rags or nasty, soiled, stained items are not useful to anyone, and undercut the dignity of those we aim to help.
While clothing is the primary item requested, we also accept donations of books, hygiene products, non-perishable foods, toys, and anything else the Skid Row population might need.
In recent years, the Clothing Giveaway has also evolved into a Breakfast Giveaway, in which we donate a hot meal and coffee to the Skid Row residents who show up. This aspect of the project requires fundraising and additional volunteers, so check this page for updates on those and related events.
Special thanks to individuals and groups who have helped us in past years, including Ovarian Psycos, YCL LA, The Freedom Socialist Party (FSP), and Radical Women (RW).
