Hey there! It is that time of year again. For those of you spending your first winter here at Santee Court, or in downtown LA, we work with an outreach program each year to sponsor families transitioning from homelessness.  This year we are working with “Issues and Solutions” which is a local organization that focuses primarily on issues concerning the Skid Row area.  We are asking for donations of food, clothing and toys.

Last year the gifts of toys, clothing, and other greatly needed things was really amazing. Overwhelming in fact. Most of us were on the verge of tears. The kids receiving gifts were blown away, as were the parents, families and friends. This is a really awesome local fund raiser that we can all come together as a community around.

Thank you in advance for helping us, help local families in need.

For us it is a way to give to the community in a small way when things tend to be the hardest.  This year promises to be even more difficult than most and we aim to bring a little cheer to our neighbors of the Skid Row community who are struggling to stay off the streets.


A big thank you from Santee Court Lofts.
