First Covenant Church opens its basement to the homeless during the winter months. We will be preparing Blessing Bags at Greene Espel to hand out to the residents at First Covenant Church’s homeless shelter. The Blessing Bags will have items like socks, toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, snacks, and other essentials, which MPLS WiE will be purchasing.
You are welcome to also donate unused hygiene items and other essentials that could go into the blessing bags.
Examples of items to donate:
Feminine care products (most important)
Thermal or Wools socks (most important to protect a primary form of transportation)
EmergenC, Airborne, chewable multivitamins
Layering gloves, scarves, hats
Bandaids (large ones to cover blisters)
Wet wipes (Not soap or shampoo, though travel size conditioner is nice)
