Persons Experiencing Homelessness - Care Kit Packing Event
Time & Location
About the Event
Homeless services are often provided in congregate settings, which could facilitate the spread of infection. Because many people who are homeless are older adults or have underlying medical conditions, they may also be at higher risk for severe disease.
Health departments and healthcare facilities should be aware that people who are experiencing homelessness are a particularly vulnerable group. Many of the recommendations to prevent COVID-19 may be difficult for a person experiencing homelessness to do.
PAG will be raising funds to create 2,000 CARE KITS to be distributed to Los Angeles charities serving people experiencing homelessness. Following PAG traditions, we'll host a "packing party" for volunteers to safely gather and participate in creating these CARE KITS. Social distance guidelines and other precautions for volunteers to safely gather will be adhered to.
