Plan a Care Kit Party.

Gather your family, friends, co-workers, or community group, purchase some basic supplies, and have fun putting together simple little kits that meet the practical needs of homeless men and women in our community and let them know how much they matter.


To build this kit, we used the following supplies:

  • Bottled Water
  • Plastic Bag
  • Heavy Duty Rubber Band
  • Vitamin C Supplement
  • Sore Throat Lozenges
  • Anti-Bacterial Wipes
  • Lip Balm
  • Daytime Cold/Flu Medicine
  • OTC Pain Reliever
  • Tissues
  • Cough Drops
  • A Snack
  • Bandages (for blisters)
  • And a note of encouragement (handwritten  might be even better).

Feel free to add or subtract, make your kits simpler or more complex; every little bit counts and will make someone's life a little better this winter.

Any kits you are able to create can be dropped off at the Mission facility closest to you.
