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.

The program is a registered 501(c)3 and most donations are tax deductible.

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

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