Today was the day!!! #BlessingBlitzforHomelessness

#BlessingBlitzforHomelessness

Today was the day for assembling our blessing blitz packets. It was very important to me that this summer my kids and I do something to give back to the community as a demonstration of the love of Jesus. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our community in supplying exactly what was needed to fill the packets. It was a hot and sweaty day, but we now have > 50 packets assembled! Each family that participated also received 2 packets to keep in their cars to hand out to anyone who may be in need.

Example packet

BB11

Our packets contained:

toothbrush

travel size toothpaste

Gold-Bond powder

travel size sunscreen

bottled water

socks

protein (non-chocolate for the summer)

travel size tissues

Ramen noodles

single-size tuna packets

single-size applesauce

plastic spoons

The kids also colored photos that we printed from the internet that we could include in the packet

It took 4 families about 45 minutes to assemble ~55 packets. What a quick process with such eager helpers! Here is what our assembly table looked like:

To organize the event, I created a sign-up genius via www.signupgenius.com

It was super simple!

We designed last Friday as our pick-up day where we drove to everyone’s house to pick up the donations. It was easier that way the items were organized prior to everyone showing up!

Here are the finished products. Stay tuned for our drop off day photos!
