Blessing Bags

SOTH packages “Blessing Bags” as a way to help people who are homeless or in need. ┬áThese bags are ideal to keep in your car until you have an opportunity to give it to someone in need.

We pack these bags as needed, relying on donations for these items:

  • gallon-size bags (Ziploc-type)
  • stamps
  • envelopes
  • pens
  • combs
  • brushes
  • individual packages of wet wipes
  • individual packages of kleenex
  • deodorant
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • body soap
  • shampoo
  • conditioner
  • body lotion
  • feminine products
  • socks
  • chap-stick
  • hand sanitizer
  • snacks (fruit snacks, crackers, granola bars, meal drinks or other small snack items)

Items from hotels or trial-size items fit best in the gallon-size Ziploc bags. Please consider neutral scents or unscented items when possible. Gloves and hats are much appreciated during the cold weather.

Please watch our bulletin or online newsletter for packing dates.
