We partner with churches and other community organizations to help pack the bags and provide them to people to carry in their cars. Often times we do not give to those in need because we fear that they will use the money for things other than necessities, or because we are not prepared for the moment when it arises. Like the Samaritan in the parable (see blog post here
), we should always be prepared to help those who are in need, no matter how different they may be and no matter in what type of state they may be living.
This is something that you may have heard about before. Some people call these bags "blessing bags" or "giving bags". What is different about our bags, is that we also provide information within the bags to locations where the person can go to get a hot meal, a bed for the night, as well as assistance from churches. (See below for more information).
This is who we are, and what our mission is: to provide community help for those in need by providing for their immediate, continued and eternal needs
It is our hope to not just give a one time gift that may be gone within a day. We want to provide a way towards the first steps in getting help.
