Join the TMC Cares Committee at our 2nd Annual Blessing Bag Assembly Event! A blessing bag is something that you give to a homeless person you see or pass on the street asking for money, work or shelter. It is a small bag filled with toiletries, small food items and encouraging notes - and is an excellent alternative to handing out cash.
Supplies and materials will be provided in an easy, assembly line layout so that pre-school/ school age kids can stuff their own bags to take home and hand out. All you need to do is bring your own bag (we recommend cloth shopping bags, old purses, satchels or anything that can be useful to carry items in the future). Younger children can also participate by coloring cards that can be included in the bags.
This event is a great opportunity to start the dialogue with your kids about the importance of helping those less fortunate. Pizza will be served!
If you have any questions, please email Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also appreciate any donations of travel sized items that you may have (think tolietries from hotel stays).
