Here's what I am putting in my quart size ziplock bag:
- $5 McDonalds gift certificate (there's a McDonalds in every town)
- small comb
- 1 pr socks (I can't imagine no socks or cold, wet feet)
- travel toothbrush and paste
- card with an encouraging Bible verse and my church info on it
That's it! Why not all the other stuff? Because I think there's a difference between donating something to a shelter and handing it out to someone standing on the corner. There are a million lists of things online that you can use if you're donating bags to a shelter and, if you need a service project, by all means that's a good one. But if you just want something to have in your car that will provide a meal, warm, dry feet, and a bit of encouragement from our Lord, then this is a way to do it.
