The Veterans Village of San Diego host a "Drive-Thru Clothing Drive," where members of the public can donate items for homeless ex-members of the armed forces.
The things that are dropped off today will be distributed next month at the 27th annual National Stand Down for Homeless Veterans.
The VVSD said it will accept new and gently used clothing, new men's and women's underwear, shoes, socks, towels, razors, shaving cream, tooth brushes, toothpaste and deodorant.
A count in January found more than 8,500 homeless people in San Diego County, about 17 percent of whom were veterans. The figure for ex-military members was up 2 percent from a year earlier.
The drive is scheduled between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday at 4141 Pacific Highway, in back of the employee parking lot.

A Message from Coe
To all of the unsung heroes who help out on their own that I am not aware of... I want to make sure you know how much I appreciate you and KGB appreciates you and your kindness. Thank you for helping a fellow listener and human being out there in a most difficult time. You are a real hero. And don't forget the animals caught in this crossfire. Please go to your local shelters and adopt if you can.
