Giovanni Pantoja and Noel Velasco crossed paths for the first time in late 2011 as a result of their involvement with a local mentoring program – The Partnership Scholars. The core of the program consists of college preparatory workshops and culturally enriching monthly trips. During one of these trips, Giovanni and Noel were humbled by the dire conditions on the streets of Skid Row. Instead of allowing their concern to fade, Giovanni and Noel set out to design a sustainable plan to help one of the largest homeless populations in the nation and motivate others to seek answers to community problems. After months of hard work, a wishful thought transformed into Alleviate Skid Row.

As I mentioned in the previous update, Alleviate still had work to do this weekend with the remaining blankets. I'm happy to announce every blanket was distributed to someone in need in Skid Row.

Big THANK YOU to each of you who helped Alleviate surpass its goal of 400 blankets and reach over 1,000 blankets. We not only distributed blankets, but also hundreds of each of the following: toiletries, drinks, snacks, backpacks, and clothing/accessories.

I updated the link with photos from today's distribution: http://bit.ly/Blankets2018

Always available if you have questions about our Winter Blanket Drive, upcoming events, collaboration, etc.

Happy Holidays!

Hello!

Thank you for your generosity. Many of you also donated blankets. Both pushed the number of blankets well beyond the original goal of 400.

Today we distributed the following to the less fortunate in Skid Row:

- 421 newly purchased blankets with cash donations; purchased at $7 (marked down from $10 and no tax due to quantity)
- 200 donated new/used blankets
- Toiletry kits, ball caps, snacks/holiday cookies, pillows, and coffee

Today we did NOT distribute the following due to capacity and timing of donations:

- Roughly 500 donated new/used blankets. We will distribute these next Sunday.

Please email us if you would like to join!

Thanks again,

Hi, Everyone!

We'll send a more thorough update post-distribution but in the meantime we want to say THANK YOU for the generosity.

We haven't counted or received all blankets, but are confident we've exceeded our original 400 blankets goal. Just on Monday we pre-ordered 350 new blankets.

We have many, many updates on Instagram via @alleviateskidrow and @nvested.

If you need a tax receipt, please email us and provide your name, address, phone number, and amount donated.

Thanks again and we look forward to sharing Sunday's distribution with all of you.

Warm Regards,
Noel
