Care Kits are a simple way to provide practical help to a homeless man or woman.
Have you ever thought of instead of giving money that may be used to buy alcohol or drugs to a homeless or street person, to hand them something they can use instead?
Something you may have wanted them to use the money for? How about a Care Kit that can provide practical help to a homeless man or woman.
Just take a gallon-size zipper lock plastic bags and fill them with items like the following or donate these to the Union Gospel Mission — we hand out Care Kits and hygiene bags to those coming to take a shower or getting clothes at our clothing banks.
- Water Bottle

- Crackers with Peanut Butter or Cheese
- Gift Certificate to fast food
- Hand Wipes

- Toothbrush and Toothpaste

Print out our vouchers (see below) and slip into the care kit or just hand them out to those in need.
