Serve Others Locally

by putting together & giving away a few goodie bags. Goodie bags are basically a giant Ziploc filled with things a homeless person might need/enjoy. This Christmas season is a great time to put together bags like this, keep them in your car, then, when God provides the opportunity share them with those in need.

Some of us have done this in the past and it is always fun to hand them out. So, that is the plan, do you want to join in the fun? It’s both simple and inspiring.

Here’s a simple plan to get you started…

1. Contact some friends and get them in on the venture
2. Go to your local dollar store and purchase some of the items listed below.
3. Fill up a large Ziploc bag or your local grocery store bag (a plastic Aldi’s bag works best)
4. Write and encouraging note and place it in with the goodies
5. Then put it in your car, ask God for the opportunity to share the goodies, keep your head up and join in on God at work with those in need

A few suggestions of things you might fill the bag with?

* Socks, Gloves, Hats, Hand warmers
* Shampoo, Soap, Hand sanitizer, Baby wipes
* A towel, A toothbrush, Toothpaste
* Candy bars, Cereal bar, Animal crackers
* Can of nuts, Bottled Water
* Notes of encouragement, etc
