Blessings Bags for the Homeless
If you are like me it breaks your heart to see homeless people holding signs up needing food or money.
But you might struggle (like me) because you think… if I give them money I do not know what they will do with it. Well I think this is a great solution ~ you can make blessing bags! I simply gather items I was able to get at the stores for good deals and put them in a gallon size ziploc bag. I keep them in my car so I can give them out when I see someone who is in need. (Of course use discernment when passing them out. Make sure it is in the open and others are around.)
You can head over and watch us put the bags together on FB live over HERE!
Here are some items that I like to pack and items that they need:
- Water bottle
- Tuna and crackers
- Granola Bar or cereal bar
- Fruit snack or applesauce cup
- Crackers with peanut butter or cheese
- Hand wipes
- Pack of Kleenex
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
- Nail clippers
- Band Aids
- Batteries AA or AAA
- Comb or small brush
