Have you ever wanted to help some who is homeless but don’t know what do? Give a Blessing bag! They are easy and fun to make! Here’s how to do it. Print off this list and quote. The list consists of everyday hygiene and clothing items, snacks, and words of encouragement. Put all of the items into a reusable and sturdy tote bag. If you would like to give money I suggest doing it in the form of a gift card to a local dollar store where they can replenish more items as needed. When my husband and I went to the dollar store to get the supplies for the bags we split into teams and each group found the supplies to make 2 blessing bags. We raced to find all the items and met at the front of the store. It was really fun. We took our items home and assembled them, we marked a few scriptures in the pocket bible to bring some love and encouragement to them.
We finished by adding the quote. We drove around and each of us had a bag to give away. We drove around and found people in need. We told them that we hope things turn around for them and that we know they are loved. It was a beautiful experience and I think it will be something that my kids will never forget. Share the LOVE!
What are some items YOU would put in blessing bags?!
