Blessing Bags for the Homeless
The Knoxville office has the privilege of being in a prime downtown location; they are surrounded by great restaurants, hotels, businesses and entertainment venues. As with other urban areas, Knoxville is challenged with meeting the needs of their homeless population. Each of the team members in the Knoxville office has encountered someone in need, whether for a nourishing meal or warm clothing, and while they have long recognized the urgency, the recent artic-cold weather has escalated their resolve. It’s a group effort: everyone in the Knoxville office is invited to contribute, build and take bags as they wish. It is their small contribution to helping persons we encounter everyday on the streets immediately around their office. The bags currently contain hats and gloves and warm socks, some toiletries (for both men and women), healthy snacks, and a small amount of money for a meal or other necessities. Their goal is to build enough Blessing Bags of this sort to get them through the winter. They will then change the contents slightly come spring. It is rewarding to present a small token to persons with a big need!
