Kairos Communities will be putting together Backpacks for the Homeless, to be given to the Bucks County Opportunity Council’s Street Outreach Program. We will be collecting items for the backpacks during July with a plan to put them together during our Thursday evening worship, July 25.
Recently our State legislators voted to END General Assistance which is financial support to homeless and people waiting to receive services. So these backpacks are even more important.
According to the BCOC
“Our street Outreach Program goes into the homeless camps, parking lots, bus stops and wooded areas to locate homeless people and families and connect them to service to help get housing. In making that connection, we like to offer backpacks filled with basic items they may need.”
We will be using a Signup Genius. Remember that all items must be new and for the most part must be travel sized. Sign up here: Kairos Backpacks for the Homeless
Backpacks are being generously given by a friend of Kairos Communities.
