Care Packages for the Homeless
TNG's March event is combining "Service with Socializing!" This was a huge success last year (and lots of fun!!), so let's do it again!
We will fill gallon ziplock bags full of useful items (toiletries, snacks, socks, etc) and a few dollars. These bags can be kept in our cars and given to homeless people we see along the roadside, at exits, etc. This helps to bring ease into a person's life....and more importantly...sharing an authentic connection helps to remove the shame and judgement often associated with homelessness.
In order to keep this simple, I will purchase items upfront in bulk from Amazon. The costs add up pretty quickly, so I am asking for a suggested $15-25 donation per person. If you want to pay that ahead of time, you can paypal me at YWtrYWRvbGwgfCB5YWhvbyAhIGNvbQ== and put "Care Packet" in the memo. Otherwise, please bring cash or a check with you to the event. If there is extra money, we'll donate it to the Jubilee Hunger Fund.
Also, bring an easy appetizer to share so we have munchies to snack on while we fill the bags and get to know each other! This is a Jubilee sponsored event, but please invite any of your friends! Kid friendly as well!
