Care Package Collections
You can help!
We have set a goal to fill 40 back packs with much needed items for the homeless in Zanesville. As the weather turns cold, the homeless have it even more difficult than we could begin to imagine. Sleeping on the cold dark streets on freezing nights is unbearable. Let's all come together and help them make it through this winter a little more bearable!
November 17th (Sunday) 1:00-3:00pm our group, along with any interested volunteers, will be passing out filled backpacks, water, food, blankets, coats, and a hot meal to as many homeless individuals that we can gather.
We already have backpacks and have began gathering up items throughout the year from generous donors! We would like to fill them with all of the following items once again this year!
- Socks-Black or Brown
- Hot-Hand Warmers
- Shaving Cream
- Wet Wipes
- Hats - Scarves
- Bug Spray
- Sun Screen
- Antibiotic Cream
- Bibles & Messages of Care
All of the collections & proceeds from this event will directly benefit the homeless in Zanesville. By stuffing these bags full of hygiene, food, personal care, and other items we will make a difference in everyone's lives!
If you would like to join in and help make a difference in a homeless person's life - Let them know they are cared for and they matter too! Call Teri or Bev to let us know how you would like to help (so we can avoid duplications if possible) >>Read More
