When you move out this spring, take some time to consider what you want to leave behind. If you remember, Kapi Residences supply you with bed sheets, towels, and pillows, which you can take or donate once you move out.

 

Kapi Residences also gives you the options of leaving these amenities behind, along with anything you might not need or want after moving out. These items could be old clothes, extra footwear, etc. Afterwards, everything left behind is donated to local homeless shelters, along with extra pieces of furniture and other household items.  These can be redistributed back into the neighborhood through the organization’s outreach efforts to aid and supply homeless shelters and needy communities.

Delivering Donations

You might have some questions about why Kapi Residences is putting so much effort into getting people to donate. Or just wondering how donating helps. It’s ok.  In fact, we at Kapi Residences are glad that you are curious! Kapi Residences has started making donations to homeless shelters in LA, Riverside, and San Francisco. We always want to encourage our residents to be able to give back to the community. Just last year, the total amount of donations made to the OC Rescue Mission by our residents summed up to $97,000. Kapi Residences residents are amazing!

 

 

But how does donating help? Well, starting with your donation, you could help keep homeless shelters in California supplied with blankets, bed sheets, and pillows. This can create warm and safe places for homeless people to sleep in and reduce the number of people sleeping in the streets. Your old clothes and shoes will go to someone who needs them, which is a considerably better outcome than throwing your unwanted clothes in a closet. In addition, your donation would be helping to keep the programs that shelter and house the homeless running.  Most of them are non-profit and rely on donations from the community to keep going.

Dropping off donations

If you can donate something, that’s great! It’s for a good cause that gives back to our community and you’ll be helping to put smiles on many, many faces. That’s a win-win situation right there! If you want some more information about donating, contact Kapi Residences and ask what you can leave behind when the time comes for you to move out.

As a student housing provider, we understand the importance and need of a roof and a place to live.  We are very grateful for all our residents’ support to this cause.
