The City of Lake Elsinore is excited to announce that The Anchor, the City's new crisis stabilization housing, is nearing completion. We will be hosting a safe, curbside drive-thru event on December 18th called The Anchor Drop in preparation of move in day on Dec. 30. We need your help to spread the word to your volunteers and members for support.
The Anchor, located at 215 W. Graham Avenue, will serve as the first step for many chronic homeless residents from Lake Elsinore, Wildomar and surrounding County areas to end their homelessness through the support of the City and our non-profit partner, SWAG. The facility is currently in the midst of improvements and rehabilitation funded by a $3.1 million State grant from Project Homekey.
In preparation for this housing facility, the City is seeking the community’s help to prepare units and provide donations for the incoming clients. The City needs leaders such as yourself to assist those less fortunate in our City, especially after the difficulties many of our community members have faced this year. So, please consider taking advantage of our volunteer opportunities and spread the word to other leaders in the community!
Below are three ways to sign up for volunteer opportunities, we hope you take advantage of and share these links and the attached flyer with your friends, coworkers, and family members to spread the word of the City's efforts to reduce homelessness through community action and involvement.
LE Gives Clean Extreme Move-In Ready Day: Sign up to clean, decorate, and furnish an individual housing unit, at The Anchor, for the incoming cohort of clients. You will be able to sign up for any date between 12/21 to 12/28 and for times between 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Bring your family and loved ones to help give back! All check in times have been staggered and units will be for only those in a household or individuals that sign up together.
The Anchor Drop Curbside Donation on December 18th: The Link will allow you to choose specific item(s) to purchase and drop off during the grand opening. Items range from housing supplies, furnishings, and gift cards. Stop by and drop off to aid those in need in our community! We also welcome any FOOD products as well.
LE Gives Sign Up Form: To find out more and sign up for ways to volunteer and give a hand up in a variety of ways through our LE Gives campaign at www.lake-elsinore.org/LEGives.
Please spread the word and sign up for these opportunities to help reduce homelessness in our city by giving a hand up rather than a handout! We welcome other specific ideas or donation drives you or your organization would like to coordinate for the 18th or another time.
