How You can Help and Valuable Resources


Blessing Bag Program

Blessing bags are monthly bags our group puts together that helps homeless and needy here in SWVA. These quart size (sometimes snack size) bags comes with a few items people need such as toothbrushes, hygiene products, a snack or pack of gum, information about the various resources here in our area too.

There are a couple of ways you can help with this program, even right form the comfort of your web browser!


  • Click on an advertisement here, that helps put a few cents in our account for the blessing bags
  • Donate your unused items to the cause
  • Make a Cash Donation on our Go Fund Me page

Members from our Facebook group are encouraged to help donate and our group keeps the program going by being a volunteer!

Known panhandler scammer in Roanoke. On 460 in Bonsack. 
These organizations help provide food, shelter, medical services, mental health services, hygiene, postal mailing assistance, job placement, help with getting birth certificates and social security cards, education assistance and much more.

If you are panhandling and in true need of assistance, we can help point you in the right direction. Many people right here in the Roanoke Valley want to help those in need while getting scammers and full time panhandlers off the streets.

Also, we need to help get the word out with flyers, banners, online advertisements and ask that cash donations go to the Rescue Mission and Acts 2 Ministries here in Roanoke.

We do not accept cash donations and we don't want your money, but we gladly accept volunteers and blessing bag items. 100% of the donations go to help our cause and make awareness here in the Roanoke Valley to combat those taking advantage of people in real need.

Before you donate to us however, please consider donating to one of the above programs.
