How to Give Donations to the Homeless – Streets of Hope

Do you have some clothing or items you’ve collected for San Diego’s Homeless downtown?

Donation Questions and Answers

Every Monday night, and at special events, the Streets of Hope food and clothing team serves San Diego’s homeless by passing out bags of food and your donated items. We have no thrift store, your donations go directly to the homeless.

How to Get Us Your Donation Items?

    Drop off  your donations to us any Monday night when we are gathered on the street. If you can, we encourage you to stay for a few minutes and watch the homeless smile as they try on some of your donations.

    Drop off at:

    Smart and Final Downtown
    720 15th Street
    San Diego, CA 92101
    Mondays from 6pm-6:30pm


    If a Monday night doesn’t work for you, the other option is to coordinate a date/time by clicking on the “Contact Us about Donations” button below to drop off your items at one of our drop-off locations through-out the city.
