The Laguna Beach Democratic Club (LBDC) and Wound Walk OC will co-sponsor a towel drive to benefit homeless people on Saturday, March 20 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. The event will be held in Laguna Beach at Bluebird Park, 772 Cress Street.
“Wound Walk is launching new shower stations for the homeless and are in need of new, like-new, and out-of-favor towels for the people they serve. We know the people of Laguna Beach and surrounding communities step up in times of need. This is a simple but very effective act of kindness. We will also be accepting liquid shampoo and liquid soap. We invite the community to join us at Bluebird Park to drop off their donations,” said Nia Evans, board member and events chair of LBDC. “We will also have masked volunteers by the curb to handle drive-up donors,” added Evans.
Wound Walk OC partners with religious organizations, local governments, elected officials, fire departments, police and others to serve the homeless in Orange County. Volunteers provide a variety of support, including basic first aid; meals; grooming and flowing water, soap and towels to wash up.
“Helping others in need is a value of our neighbors here in Laguna Beach, the LBDC and the Democratic Party,” said Gwen McNallan, president of the Club.
The Laguna Beach Democratic Club is entering its 75th year of uninterrupted engagement supporting Democratic candidates, causes, and values. Its informational programming and charitable events are open to the whole community. For more information about the Laguna Beach Democratic Club, visit thelbdems.com.
