Blessing Bags

Blessing Bags are gallon-sized bags that are filled with a small assortment of basic toiletries, socks, snacks, a Bible passage, etc.  These are given to the homeless or to anyone who appears to be in need.  The Blessing Bags give people a few items to help them through their day and it also gives them hope in knowing that they are loved in the name of Jesus.

Help us collect enough items to fill 30 blessing bags to be distributed to the homeless in Bridgeport.
