Providing showers to our most vulnerable neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On May 15 Shower the People got the OK from the County to reopen our showers. Because of the kind support and donations from Arroyo Grande Community Hospital, the Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund and the United Way of San Luis Obispo’s Rapid Relief Fund, and because of the many individual donations from the people in our community, Shower the People was able to restart our mobile shower program on June 2nd. We reworked our processes with a renewed focus on safety for clients and volunteers. See Locations—Days—Hours of Operation below for our current schedule.
Every shower guest receives a mask, 2oz bottle of hand sanitizer, and a package of 30 biodegradable outdoor wipes by Trail Blazer.
Shower the People believes that during this time of the COVID pandemic it is more imperative than ever to help our most vulnerable neighbors.
The schedule below is currently not fully active due to the coronavirus-related restrictions in our communities. We restarted shower service at the Unitarian Universalist Church in San Luis Obispo on June 2nd, at the SLO Library on July 5th, and at the Central Coast Worship Center in Oceano on July 29th. We’ll announce other locations as we’re ready to reopen there.
