BENEFITING: COMMUNITIES CARING FOR FAMILIES
Imagine this....having a painful hang nail but not having nail clippers to cut it off....dry, chapped lips from constant exposure to the cold winter weather, but no chapstick to relieve the pain....cold, wet feet but no dry socks...chapped, dry skin and no lotion to moisturize it...acid reflux or heartburn searing in your chest and throat and NOT a single antacid to relieve the burn...how about walking around in freezing weather and not having a hat,gloves, and scarf to protect you from the brutal elements...what about that nagging, throbbing toothache but not having ORAJEL to soothe the pain...better yet, how about not having a tooth brush or tooth paste just to perform basic oral hygiene.
I can not IMAGINE living this way, but thousands do so every single day all around us. I want to make a positive change in the lives of the homeless one filled back pack at a time!
Other items I provide are: deodorant, female hygiene items, healthy snacks/water, eye drops, first aid kits, kleenex, toilet paper, shampoo, brushes/combs, disposable razors, lotion, Wet wipes, hand sanitizer, Q-tips, reusable food containers, ponchos, flashlights, bars of soap/wash clothes, Vitamin C drops, Triple antibiotic cream, first aid kits....the list seems to go on forever.
If many give a little, it will end up being a lot!
Help me help the homeless this holiday season!
