    This is such GOOD guidance! It should become a regular practice, every time we go grocery shopping, to shop for ourselves and for those in need.

      Definitely! By putting together these bags, we are encouraging positive community growth.

    Here in Florida, our homeless populations is staggering, especially with vets. I carry bags similar to what's in this article except I include bug repellent. It's like gold to the homeless around here.....

      Thanks for the tip! Bug repellent is a great item to add to the bag.

    I work for a non-proft that's clients are often homeless and on the brink of homelessness. Care packages like this can really make the world of difference.
