SGVCOG Donation Drives
Through targeted donation drives across the San Gabriel Valley, Village 143 aims to support individuals experiencing homelessness by collecting essential items to help them meet their basic needs.
Village 143 is named after the pager code for "I Love You" to remind all of us to love each other and support our neighbors through acts of kindness.
SGVCOG will host a new donation drive each quarter to help unhoused SGV community members. Check back for additional information about future Village 143 donation drives!
Unhoused women often lack access to vital feminine hygiene products. A recent study showed that two in five individuals struggled to afford period products last year, disproportionately impacting African American and Latina women who both reported difficulties paying for these products.
In an effort to address this need the SGVCOG is taking donations to create Positive Period Packs, which contain pads, tampons, and other sanitary items. We are partnering with SGV service providers to distribute the packs.
