Repeat Every Month(s) on the Second Wednesday
Blessing Bags are gallon-size Ziploc® bags that contain snacks, travel-size toiletries, socks, a bottle of water, grooming supplies, and other items that people who live on the street find useful. Bags are kept in your car, so when you encounter a person who is experiencing homelessness, you can offer the bag to them. Shopping lists are distributed on the first Wednesday of each month. Items on the list are purchased during the week and brought back the second Wednesday of the month, and those who are interested are invited to take a few bags with them to keep on hand in their cars. Shopping list: any individually wrapped snacks | breakfast bars | cereal bars | granola bars | combs | hand lotion | lip balm | peanut butter and cheese crackers | protein bars | soap | toothbrush and toothpaste | Vienna sausage in pop-top can | applesauce | coffee | face towel | hand sanitizer | mints | plastic utensils | single packaged nuts and trail mix | sunscreen | foil tuna packs (not requiring a can opener) | bottled water | gallon-size Ziploc® bags.
