Homeless people often rely on the generosity of strangers and nonprofit organizations for assistance when they lack a roof over their heads and the basic necessities of life. Giving Care Bags to the homeless can supply these individuals with items that may be difficult to come by and provide a touch of kindness during a period of their life when they need it the most.
At the last get-together, the arc Ambassador Civitan Club made over 100 Care Bags that will be donated to a homeless shelter in the Denver area. Some of the many items that are needed and that we included in our Care Bags are socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, band-aids, chapstick, protein bars, and many other essentials. As the Civitan creed says, “MY HANDS do the work of the world and reach out in service of others.” The arc Ambassador Civitan Club made it their mission on this day to help make the world a more compassionate place
