Holiday Time At My Friend’s Place

2015 holiday

Get into the holiday spirit and provide some cheer for our youth this holiday season! Partner with us to provide gifts for 250 homeless young people ages 12-25 receiving care from My Friend’s Place and support their journey toward futures of stability and self-sufficiency. Consider contributing items from the wish list, sponsoring a holiday gift drive, gathering gifts with family and friends or hosting a giving tree at your work, community center or business.

Additional opportunities include becoming holiday sponsor or underwriter (levels range from $25 to $5,000), helping out at My Friend’s Place as an individual volunteer or corporate volunteer team, or hosting or sponsoring our Parenting Program’s annual holiday celebration for our young families.

This season, My Friend’s Place would like to deliver gifts to some 250 homeless young people. Specifically, we are hoping to provide the following: 

  • New Hoodies
  • New Rain Gear (Ponchos, Umbrellas & Tarps)
  • New Scarves and Gloves
  • $10 Store Gift Cards (groceries, Target, etc.)
  • $10 Fast Food Gift Cards (Subway, Jack In The Box, etc.)
  • TAP cards pre-loaded with a day pass ($8)

We would prefer to have all gifts in to My Friend’s Place by December 11th to prepare for distribution at our Holiday Party on December 18th.

All contributions are tax deductible and greatly appreciated! For more information, please contact Jeff Katz at (323) 908-0011 x101 or

Thank you for making the holidays special for the youth experiencing homelessness in Hollywood!
