What to give to the homeless person on the street corner
Like many others, I've often wondered what's the best way to help a homeless person I see asking for a handout on a street corner. After doing some research, I came up with this idea for a small bag containing some items that may be helpful to most individuals in need:
- a grocery gift card for them to purchase food or other needed personal items
- 1 or 2 pairs of socks
- a granola or protein bar
- a small notepad and pen
- a note of encouragement or inspiration
- a quart size zip lock back to hold all ingredients
You can put some of these bags together and keep in your car glovebox and when you see a homeless person you can bless them with some needed items.
I'd like to hear any other ideas from anyone for giving to the homeless.
What inspirational note would you include?
