Keeping our homeless neighbors warm is a serious issue this time of year.

Depending on your area, both warmth and cold can impact their well being.

In warm climates, rain and dampness need to be managed. A raincoat can be made from a plastic leaf bag. In colder climates that same leaf bag can block the wind. Since most groups put a simple health kit containing a change of underwear and other small toiletries together and slip it into the sleeping bag, a plastic leaf bag could be beneficial as a drop cloth or a wet weather coat.

It’s’ a simple but heart felt prayer, full of grace for the recipient of a sleeping bag.

 

LORD, take the work of our hands and bless it.

And in Thy name, let the person that receives this gift know he or she is loved. Amen

 

Many of the groups attach this blessing to the sleeping bag with a single stitch.
