Suppliers BELLA+CANVAS (PPAI 304892) and Gildan (PPAI 250187), in partnership with charity Bundles of Hope, will distribute care packages to over 5,000 homeless people in Los Angeles on March 15.
BELLA+CANVAS donated new t-shirts, and Gildan supplied pairs of socks to the care packages that Bundles of Hope will give to the homeless as they make their way back into traditional living.
Jack Harris, the son of BELLA+CANVAS CEO Danny Harris and a senior at Beverly Hills High School, founded Bundles of Hope and organized a group of students on Sunday to assemble the packages. He says, “The intent was to not only give a much-needed boost to [homeless recipients’] self-esteem, but to make them feel valued as individuals.”
Bundles of Hope’s mission is to provide homeless individuals in transition with basic essentials to help make their lives easier and to spread awareness of the challenges faced by people living on the streets of Los Angeles County.
