  • Resource lists information
  • Ministry info list

   This help pack consists of about 50 items in all. We get the back-packs from St. Vincent or Goodwill and the items mostly from The Dollar Tree. Depending on if it's a male or female focused pack, we will include some different items (this is a male pack). Also, depending on the time of the year, we'll include certain items like ponchos and/or umbrellas.

   The resource list information consists of local places for people to get food, whether a meal or boxes of food. Also, resources for places to stay, try to get work, get Biblical counseling and other such local resources we think would help their situation.

   The ministry list information consists of the ministries we listen to, support, and are helped by. In this list will be names, websites, phone numbers to shows and other information. Mostly this will begin to be helpful later on when they get on their feet more, but if they do have a phone or access to the Internet here and there, they can connect to some edifying Christian brothers and sisters.

   As time goes, our help pack will improve as we think of better ways to help people with the items we include. For now, these are the items that we can think to put into a help pack. Since we shop cheaply at the Dollar tree and the second hand store we are able to keep the cost down as low as we can. Basically a help pack costs $50 in all.

  Are goal is to include the most useful items at the lowest cost, so in time our help packs should only improve. Thank you for reading, if you would like to help then use the PayPal donate button on this site. God bless, and remember the poor in your prayers.
