Ever wonder how you can help a homeless individual? Great idea! Here's what she does: Every month, I go to the store and get zip lock bags, snacks, and hygiene products and make little baggies that I call "blessing bags". I sit down and fill these bags with non perishable items in them. I keep at least four of them in my car so when I'm driving and see a homeless person I give them these bags because you can clearly see that any little bit will help.
Backpacks for homeless - very helpful, backpacks are always in high demand, and putting the right stuff inside that really will be useful is an added blessing.
