Most homeless people in America have nowhere to live due to no fault of their own. Homelessness is mostly caused by lost of a job (or insufficient income), lack of affordable housing, and domestic violence (mostly against women). We should all sympathize with those who are homeless, because it is a fact that a lot of us are just a paycheck away from being homeless. We should also do anything we can to help lighten the burden of those who find themselves in this dilemma.
Many people who are homeless lack the basic necessities of life. You would be surprised to realize that some of the items we take for granted are desperately needed by those who are homeless. Items such as gloves, socks, lip balms, toothbrushes, toothpaste, small bottles of water and other beverages are in high demand. Helping with these basic items can bring blessings in people’s lives.
Our Blessing Bag Ministry is helping to make the burdens of homeless people lighter by stuffing Ziploc bags with needed items. We carry these bags around while going about our daily business and hand them out when we come in contact with a person in need. We also distribute these bags when we deliver meals on the 1st and 4th Thursday each month. We hope that God will continue to bless us and thus enable us to continue this critically needed ministry. If there is anything you can do to help, please do not hesitate to contact us.
