Step 1: Create a List
I would suggest doing this first that way your project is not only organized but you don't forget anything that you feel should be included.
Step 2: Gathering Items
Along with the items you're putting into the packs do you need to decide how you were going to package them. I personally chose purses for the women and shaving bags for the men because those are items that they can use for a very long time instead of a plastic or paper bag that's not going to last very long.
With seeking donations you do need to be prepared to be turned down, because a lot of people are looking for a free handout for the wrong reasons and ruin it for others. But there are places that will be happy to do help with your cause. When I went looking for donations I used my assignment sheet from class to show what I was making so they knew that my heart was in the right place.
Step 3: Create and Give
*Contact local law-enforcement and ask them where the homeless people in your area can be found if you don't know.
*Never go alone because you don't know any of the people you're going to be giving to and you need to remain safe.
*Remember that these people who are homeless are still human beings and they need compassion. They don't need to feel like they are less than anybody else and always remember that when speaking to them.
