Make care packages for the homeless
Unfortunately, there are people in this world that don’t have a home to live in. They have to live in homeless shelters or out on the street. These people often suffer from mental illness or addiction problems but it is also sometimes just people who have fallen on hard times. It’s very hard living on the streets and homeless people have a hard time properly taking care of themselves. There is something you and your friends or family can do to help them. You can make them care packages with supplies that they need but don’t have easy access to. This is how it works. Each of you buy $20 worth of items for the packages (things like granola bars, tissues, wipes, toothbrushes, socks, bandaids, chapstick, nail clippers, and a note of encouragement). A great thing to put them in is one of those drawstring backpacks because they are reusable and lightweight. Then you each take a few bags to keep in your car and give them to a homeless person when you see one or you can bring all the bags at once to a homeless shelter (call first to make sure this is okay). This may not solve the homelessness problem for good but at least that person will know that someone out there cares about them.
