City Hall Hosts Clothing Drive for LGBT Youth

The city of West Hollywood and the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center collect business attire for homeless youth.

A clothing drive aimed at helping homeless LGBT young people prepare for job interviews starts Thursday at West Hollywood City Hall.

The city and the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center are collecting dress pants, shirts, suits, jackets, shoes, belts, sweatshirts, and sweaters, according to the city's website. The donation drive also accepts toiletries such as travel-size shampoo and conditioner products, soaps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream and razors.

Donors can bring goods to the City Hall lobby through Jan. 31.

I think this is a fine idea - and should be extended to all people in the city who might be able to get a job if they had the right attire. It inspires me to divest my closet of some unworn but good looking clothing and it makes me also hope that larger sizes for for all who are in need will find their way to the donation site. Size 1's are great for some but most of us are a tad larger. It also seems that retailers could pitch in as well. This is a good idea and I will gladly be part of it.

I agree that it is a fine idea and should be expanded to all people in the city who need the proper attire to interview for jobs. I wish I had something to donate, but I have nothing but junk in my closet. My working clothes are long gone and many sizes ago. They all went to Goodwill.
