I created these cards to include in the Blessing Bags our church has put together for the homeless. This is such a simple way to demonstrate kindness and teach your kids about giving to those in need. Start with a zip closure plastic bag and fill it with small comfort items like socks, snacks or gift cards. Slip one of these printable cards inside for a personal touch that might help brighten someone’s day.

I’ve put blessing bags together with a number of different groups and in different settings. We’ve have had the opportunity to hand them out while walking the streets of our city or while stopping our car at an intersection.


By now, the term “Blessing Bag” has become a common phrase in many parts of the country. Perhaps you have already participated in a group project that assembled these bags, or passed them out yourself. I love hearing what kinds of things people include in their blessing bags.

TIP: The greatest need we hear about from homeless people in Detroit, Michigan is for socks. Many homeless people around us have access to food, but get really excited about warm socks.

Here are a few of the things we have included in our blessing bags:

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Tylenol (individual packet of 2)
  • Tissues
  • Antibacterial wipes
  • Bandages
  • Juice box
  • Non perishable snack foods
  • Safety pins
  • Change for making a phone call
  • Socks
  • Shaving supplies
  • Encouraging notes or little Bible
  • Other reading material
  • List of homeless shelters or food banks in the area
  • Deodorant
  • Bar soap
  • Mouthwash
  • Comb
