Many people have asked me about the Gift Bags that the Harvey family put together to give away to needy people (described in Chapter 21 of my book, “Elephant in the Room.”). I’ve been making them for years with my daughters and friends, so I’m happy to share some instructions with you.
Rather than try to write out detailed directions to assemble the bags, I have made a four-minute video with my friend Charlotte showing you How to Make a Gift Bag for the Needy! CLICK HERE to view the video.
I hope you find that video helpful so that you will try making Gift Bags and give them away at the next opportunity. For more information, I have also provided some free printed documents that you can download (just CLICK on each item below):
- a list of supplies, non-perishable food and hygiene items to fill the bag,
- sample information about services from our local Rescue Mission, and
- a copy of John 3:16 for children to color and tuck into the bag for encouragement .
Please comment below if you make and give away some Gift Bags. Or share your ideas of how you can meet the needs of hungry and hurting people in your community.
