Drop Off Instructions

We are able to accept donations anytime during our regular business hours. We are open Monday – Thursday 9:00am – 5:30pm and Friday 8:00am – 5:00pm. While our building is located at 5850 Hollywood Blvd., donations are accepted through the back parking lot, which is accessible via the alley just south of the 76 gas station on at Bronson and Hollywood Blvd. You are welcome to pull into our lot and park in any space. Once you’re in the lot, ring the buzzer at the glass door atop the stairs. We accept the donations through the first floor so no need to bring them up the stairs with you.

My Friend’s Place encourages you to host a drive with your coworkers, classmates, family, or friends! Before beginning your drive, please contact Daniel Lee at (323) 908-0011 ext. 141 or at for more information.

Welcome Home Helpers

When our youth transition off the streets and into transitional/permanent housing, many are lacking the basic necessities to set up a comfortable space to call their own. From sheets and towels to pillows and placements, our Welcome Home Helpers assist our youth in turning a house into a home.

My Friend’s Place is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.
