Homeless Resources of California extends its efforts into community outreach, and we can use your help.
About halfway through my stint of “urban camping”, I began organizing donation drives to get much needed items to folks living on the street. This was the most special moment I have had so far. Through a very generous donation, I happened to have a collection of shoes. I was able to pull up on this gal that desperately needed a pair. It was cold and she was barefoot. She was so grateful for these shoes. What a simple thing do… I just passed on a pair of shoes that someone passed on to me. I never forgot how powerful that simple act of giving was. Since then I have dedicated myself to continuing to help people just like this with such gestures of charity. This site is just a part of it.
Once a week, I continue this practice by handing out blessing bags to folks in need. Here’s how you can help…
Blessing bags are a collection of survival essentials for living on the street. You may have seen this idea on social media, where good Samaritans distribute these items in small bags to homeless folks in their communities. Many people prefer this to giving “spare change.” I can tell you from experience, these simple items can make a huge difference to those in need.Each item is about 99cents, and there are twelve items per bag. For a mere $10-$25, you can purchase a gift certificate to help us purchase these simple yet essential items from the following stores;
You can send these cards (or cash) to:
