A Showerful Year

From January through October of 2021, Shower the People SLO has given more than 2,700 showers to people in our community. Thank you to the volunteers, donors, and other supporters who have made this possible, and to our guests who keep coming back and recommending our service to their friends.

New Charging Station

Our new electric charging station has been a hit. Guests appreciate the opportunity to charge up their phones and other devices while they shower or wait for a shower.

Shower The People Is an Information Hub

Shower The People has produced a series of resource information cards about free and low-cost food, clothing, and shelter resources in SLO and the Five Cities. We make these cards available at our greeter station to help our guests become more aware of how to meet basic needs.

Suds for the Holidays

Friday, December 3rd, 2021, the Shower the People trailer will participate in the 45th Downtown SLO Holiday Parade! Would you like to help decorate the trailer with lights and more lights? Would you like to take part in the parade? Let us know.


HumanKind Fair Trade in San Luis Obispo donated 10% from on-line and in-store (974 Monterey St.) sales on November 1, 2021 to Shower The People SLO.


Shower the People at the Vets Stand Down

For the third consecutive year, Shower The People SLO offered free showers at the Santa Barbara County Veterans Stand Down, which was held on October 16, 2021 this year.

Volunteer Party

For our Volunteer Party all who could attend spent a sunny afternoon hobnobbing with each other, eating great food, with great music from Change of Plans, and exceptional dogs.
