***
If you’re interested in helping the asylum seekers, right now, we have an idea that everyone can do at home. If you want to make Love Bags to help, we can personally guarantee that we’ll get these into the hands of the families within days. We work with all of the churches and organizations who are receiving the asylum seekers daily and we will get them into the backpacks for the asylum seekers, immediately.

Following you’ll find some ideas that you can use:

HYGIENE BAGS:
Using travel sizes or hotel sizes
Soap
Toothpaste
Travel toothbrush
Hand sanitizer
Shampoo/Conditioner
Lotion
Wash cloth
Comb

MUNCHIE BAGS:
all nonperishable
Granola bar
Raisins
Welches gummies
Bag of peanuts
Package of cookies
Package of crackers/chips

TOY BAGS:
Crayons
Small coloring book
Puzzle
Action figure
Small rubber ball

All of the above items are just ideas and they can be customized any way you’d like. The idea is, everything must fit in an already packed backpack, so keeping things to a ziplock (any size) is necessary. If you’d like to participate, simply make as many goodie bags as you can and bring them with you to the event. We will collect them all and make sure they are received by the those who need them most.

Also, you may want to put an encouraging note in the bags, in Spanish, for these weary travelers (google translate will help). They’ll love that. ❤️
