A Few Good Sponsors Wanted!

The Servants of the Father of Mercy, the authors of Homeless In America blog is a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit, tax-exempt organization and a Private Association of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  Our mission is to serve the poor homeless, about 90,000 in the So Cal region with food, fresh fruit, water, jeans, shoes, socks, blankets, sleeping bags, t-shirts, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, prayer cards, rosaries, hugs and more.  From time to time, the food and water delivered to a homeless person living under area bridges, in alleyways and on river bottoms has arrived just in time to prevent dehydration, hyperthermia and even death.

Today, the homeless we serve needs a person just like you to help sponsor dozens of plastic point-of-sale (POS) donation boxes that will collect spare change from Los Angeles area customers checking out of shops, cafes and restaurants.  Each donation box is a plastic cylinder 8 inches tall and 5 inches wide  (see picture).

In the month of May, the POS cans were launched in the Ventura, California area and have been very successful in generating change that now helps increase supplies and even medical basics like rash ointments, hand sanitizer, Neosporin and more for the homeless.

To make the POS cans a year around fundraiser, we invite your sponsorship.  Our custom signage wrap (professionally made by FastSigns) will proudly display your organization’s name on the canister providing 1,000s of name advertisements per month in 60 on-going locations around downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) or you may wish to remain anonymous – it is your choice.  We suggest a sponsorship donation of $80 - $100 to help jump start this project and make it a reality in 60 new locations in DTLA. Your gift is tax deductible.  Join a caring and compassionate team of sponsors.  Here are just a few who have volunteered to help out with a sponsorship donation:

1. Orlando’s Art House
2. VDB Productions, AFHV
3. Red Brick Pizza
4. Coast Office Supply
5. Urbane Café
6. Remax
7. BLUECANVAS Magazine
8. Sky Dive Taft
9. Mai's Cafe
