Blessing Bags to keep in the car when you pass homeless people. Something special you can do with your children or grandchildren to teach them about caring/giving for those in need!

For your blessing bags you will need:

  • gallon size Ziploc bags
  • Chap Stick
  • packages of tissues
  • travel size toothbrush and toothpaste
  • travel size mouthwash
  • comb
  • soap
  • hotel size shampoos
  • trail mix
  • granola bars
  • crackers
  • pack of gum
  • Band aids
  • coins or predetermined dollar amount, say 5.00 (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
  • hand wipes
  • a warm pair of socks
  • packet rain poncho
  • tampons (for women)

The ideas could be endless!

Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence or drop some off at a food or homeless shelter.

I have an abundance of freebies that I have come to me in the mail or that obtain from hotel stays and such. I will never in my entire life be able to use these. I am on a mission now to help those less unfortunate. I have some used purses as well and I am putting some of the items that I have compiled over the years and doing a handout to the homeless.


I think they would appreciate shampoos and toothpastes. All in all, I think it will make me feel good to give this holiday season.
