Jennifer Schmidt recently wrote a post for the (In)Courage site called The Hidden Face of Homelessness. I found her post so appealing that I would like to bring your attention to it. You can find the full post at (In)Courage: The Hidden Face of Homelessness.
What Ms. Schmidt is suggesting is so obvious but unlikely to have been thought of very many people. She prepares "care packages for the homeless" that she carries around with her and hands out when she happens to run into a homeless person. Here is what she suggests including in a care package:
1. Hand warmers, gloves
3. Wet Wipes
5. Water bottle
6. Mints/gum/cough drops
9. Note/bible verse
10. Pillar candles
This is something we can all do, both for those that we take to dinner and those we just occasionally run into. I will say "yes" to her question: "Will you join me [in carrying and giving out care packages]?" How about you?
