Give Something Useful
You’ll want to prepare in advance. It can be done alone, but prepping outreach kits can can also be rewarding with others: kids, grandchildren, a small group, coworkers.
Assemble any combination of the items below in a gallon-sized zipper bag. Keep a couple bags handy in your vehicle.
Socks (this is the number-one desired item)
Foot Powder (small container)
Toothbrush & toothpaste
Non-perishable snacks like crackers and nuts
Hand sanitizer (alcohol-free)
A hand-written note of encouragement
Also consider: Nail clippers, encouraging literature, a comb or brush, soap, washcloth, shampoo, toilet paper
