Blessing Bag Update

February 15th, 2013 by Will Humble Leave a reply »

I wanted to update on one of my December blog posts.  Around the holidays, patients at the Arizona State Hospital decided to take on a project – to help the homeless.   Patients wanted an opportunity to give back to the community in a way that would help those in need.  They chose a project working with the Phoenix Rescue Mission to create Blessing Bags to give to the homeless. Since many patients have been homeless in the past, they know what it’s like to have nothing. 

The patients collected donations for the Blessing Bags during the month of December. They collected travel size hygiene products, small snacks, gloves, socks etc.  Some patients even donated what they earned from the point store.  Then they filled gallon size plastic bags with donated items.  The patients also included a hand written inspirational note in each bag.  They ended up with more than 150 bags which will soon be distributed by the Rescue Mission.

    That is AWESOME! Think of how the world would be different if every person were to do one small act of kindness like this. Keep up the great work.
