Gift Bags For The Homeless

Gift Bags For The Homeless

Gift Bags to keep in the car when you pass homeless people. Something special you can do with the kids to teach them about caring for others.

Ideas to place in the bag:

Gallon size Ziplock bags
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
hotel size shampoos
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash

coins or predetermined dollar amount, say 5.00 (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
or a gift card from a fast food restaurant
hand wipes
a warm pair of socks
a packet rain poncho
tampons (for women)
The ideas could be endless!
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.
