Bring hygiene to the homeless

Lava Mae has given over 20,000 showers to more than 4000 individuals in the homeless community. Emery Pharma is partnering with Lava Mae to do this for the homeless community in Oakland. This organization is focused on helping homeless individuals get off the streets by providing them with the resources they need to re-gain their sense of dignity, ultimately helping them get back into the workforce.

Please donate to help create the very first "pop-up care village" in Oakland.

These pop-up care villages provide showers, hair cuts, clothing, dental services, health screenings, counseling, and many more services that become the bridge for some of these individuals to get off the streets. 

All funds will be donated directly to Lava Mae to fund the first pop-up village in Oakland. Please help us raise $7,000 by November 30th.
