This Valentine's Day, show some love to youth experiencing homelessness in our community by sponsoring a Citypak backpack! Citypaks are unique backpacks designed specifically to be used by individuals experiencing homelessness. Just $20 covers the cost of one backpack—less than a box of chocolates!
Imagine having to carry all of your possessions on your back, every single day, everywhere you go. For thousands of homeless young people in Los Angeles, this is part of their every day experience. Heavy backpacks contribute to intense physical strain, adding to the psychological and emotional stress of being homeless. Additionally, the average backpack is not built to withstand such constant use, and may break as a result of inclement weather or overpacking. Citypak is designed to reduce some of the stresses that homeless youth experience by providing a functional, comfortable and durable alternative to regular backpacks.
Please consider sweetening Valentine's Day for our young people this year by sponsoring a Citypak today! With your support, we can provide Citypaks to 50 young people accessing services at My Friend's Place.
