Join Gay For Good Los Angles as we work with Water Drop LA to distribute water to our neighbors in Skid Row.
We will load our personal cars with as much water as will fit and be separated into teams of two or three people per vehicle. WDLA will provide each carload with driving routes and drop points. Gay For Good volunteers will have the opportunity to partner with experienced volunteers from WDLA in order to learn best practices as we do our drops.
We have a total of fifteen volunteer slots available for this event. As mentioned above, we will need a few folks to volunteer their personal vehicles for the drops. For those who don’t feel comfortable using their vehicles, there is ample parking at the meet-up point. The meet-up point is a few blocks from Skid Row.

Time: 11:00am – 2:00pm

Accessibility: A big part of this project is lifting plastic jugs of water and twisting the body.

We will put you to work in whatever way suits you!

From WDLA’s website By packing 15+ cars and trucks with water gallons and fanning out across the region, we are able to reach a significant number of Skid Row residents. While a gallon a week is nowhere near sufficient for healthy survival in Los Angeles’s hot climate, we hope that this regular water distribution, which supplements the actions already being taken by organizers around the city, will curb some of the existing urgent need for clean drinking water.
