Oroville, Calif. -- An Oroville non-profit is asking the public for help in funding a mobile hygiene unit for the homeless.

If enough money is raised, the mobile unit will offer free shower and laundry service, specifically geared towards assisting the transient population in the North State. 


The Oroville Southside Community Improvement Association is a non-profit raising money for the North State's very own mobile unit. The unit will be called Haven Of Hope On Wheels.

There are several washers, driers and showers the homeless can use for free in the mobile unit.

"We're looking to have individuals who are not looking for handouts, but for a helping hand. And I believe with our Haven Of Hope on Wheels, I think we can accomplish that if we work together with our community," said Pastor Kevin Thompson, CEO of the Oroville Southside Community Improvement Assoc.

Currently, the non-profit is about $60,000 away from its goal.

If you would like to contribute to the mobile unit, Haven Of Hope On Wheels, their GoFundMe link is here.
