Purple Lotus Patient Center Partners with Dignity On Wheels to Assist San Jose’s Homeless San Jose, California, Tuesday, August 30, 2016 – In a detailed report released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, San Jose/Santa Clara County has posted the nation's fifth-highest homeless population. Additionally, the area ranked among the counties with the most chronically homeless old and young adults and children.
Taking a shower may seem like a routine rather than a privilege for many, but for people living on the streets, a safe place to wash is hard to find. In an effort to bridge the gap between Silicon Valley’s extremes of wealth and poverty, the Purple Lotus Patient Center has partnered with Dignity On Wheels to provide San Jose’s homeless with showers, clean clothes, and personal care items.
The Purple Lotus Patient Center will donate kits with blankets, gloves, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, baby wipes, soap, hair care products, and other personal care items. Project WeHOPE, a non-profit based in San Mateo, California, will provide a mobile trailer equipped with showers, a washer/dryer, and bathrooms. The kits and mobile trailer will be available at the First Presbyterian Church in San Jose on Monday, September 12, 2016, from Noon to 5 PM.
