October's Community Outreach - Love Bags!

Stephanie Berman

The community outreach project of October was Love Bags! We all know that feeling when you’re at a stop light and you see someone in need. We want to help, but we’re not sure what the best thing to do is. Love Bags can be the answer!

“What are Love Bags?” you may be wondering. They are individual bags of necessities to help the homeless. Inside each bag are items like snacks, water, personal hygiene products, first aid essentials, and more. Each team member brought in items to add to the bags and we created an assembly line to package the bags together!

 A few of our wonderful team members, Julien, Katey, Raquel, Ty, Caci, and Ariel worked together to assemble Love Bags for our community! Awesome job, Platinum Family!

Helpful tips for distributing Love Bags:

  1. Smile. This person probably gets ignored by hundreds of people every day.

  2. Make eye contact. It shows that the person matters.

  3. Don’t give money. It’s your decision, of course, but we generally discourage giving cash. Instead, ask what their immediate need is and consider how you can help. Buy them a meal? A bus ticket?

  4. Be available to have a conversation. Some people won’t want to talk, so be sensitive. Others will be delighted to tell you their story.

  5. Pray. Before you go, while you go, for the people you encounter. Ask the person if they would like you to pray for them right there.

  6. Be wise. The majority of homeless men and women are not dangerous — they’re people just like you. But it’s smart to go out as a group when handing out Love Bags.
