We have started something in our family that has been a very easy way for us to help some that are in need. We have started carrying food in our minivan (like granola bars, fruits, breads, etc.) that we have taken from home that we may not need or that we have gotten really cheap. Why are we keeping it in our minivan?
Well, as we have all seen and noticed, there are people on the streets begging for help. Many are looking for food. Often times, we would see them as we were on our way into the grocery store, and then get them something, to find them gone by the time we came out. Last time that this happened, ThriftyAl requested that we gather things to keep with us to hand them immediately. Also, many are men, and so have prepacked bags of men’s clothing and shoes that you are no longer in need of might be a way to help as well.
Just a thought and an idea for you to easily help others – especially during the cold months!
