Or, care packs are a simple way to provide practical help to a homeless person or those evacuated during a crisis.
As well as donating the packs to shelters, keep a few in your car so you’re able to immediately offer one to a person in need!
If you would like to find out how to make up care packs to take to your local charity, we can advise you as to how to go about it. We can also reimburse you up to $250 for the contents of your care packs. Also consider including a free Bible or some manner of positive preaching material!

“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”
