Donations provide hygiene kits with basic toiletries and soap to people experiencing homelessness and mental health issues

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center, Inc. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide donor's full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Homelessness in Los Angeles County

According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, 51,340 individuals experienced homelessness in Los Angeles County in 2011. Of these individuals, more than 9,000 are veterans, and 12,500 experience chronic homelessness.

The San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center, Inc.'s Cornerstone program serves as the first point of contact for adults aged 26–59 who have a serious mental illness and are experiencing homelessness. When new clients arrive at the Center, many are in a fragile state of health due to months—if not years—of malnutrition and poor hygiene.

The Campaign: Hygiene Kits for Clients with Mental Illness

With each $10 donation to this Grassroots campaign, the San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center, in partnership with Walgreens, can give a hygiene kit to one client experiencing homelessness. Each kit contains items including, but not limited to a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, body wash, bar soap, and hand sanitizer. The Center's staff and volunteers will hand out the hygiene kits to clients at the Cornerstone program and to individuals on the streets. Each additional $10 donation will be used to provide a hygiene kit to another client experiencing homelessness.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

I clicked no I wouldn't go back because I didn't actually go to this location. This Groupon was a donation to the mental health center. I think it is wonderful Groupon assists organizations such as this with collecting needed items. It makes it easy for me to help, which makes me feel good!
