On Your Own

On Your OwnHomelessness is all around us. You can help on your own by keeping “Blessing Bags” in your car so that when you do see someone on the streets who is homeless, you can hand them a Blessing Bag. You will need gallon size Ziplock bags and items to go in the bags, such as:

Chap stick
Packages of tissues
Toothbrush and toothpaste

Insect repellent
Granola bars
Band aids
Hand wipes
Warm pair of socks
Even a Starbucks or grocery store gift card

Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
