My family has a tradition of creating homeless care packages and blessing bags to donate to our local food pantry and homeless shelter. I also carry extras in my car to hand out when I meet someone who is homeless. Having worked with homeless populations, I have collected truly helpful homeless care package and blessing bag ideas.
