Collect donations for the homeless

Cool Story - Collect donations for the homeless

Houston County 4-H is collecting donations for the homeless

Organizations are now stepping up to the plate as Houston County embarks on a quest to aid the homeless.

The 4-H club in Houston County has produced what they refer to as blessing bags.

As the cold has arrived, Sanford adds, "One of the things that we wanted to do was to give back to the less fortunate in our communities. People need things vital to keeping over the entire year."

According to federal statistics, Georgia has 10,000 homeless people, with one-third of them living in rural areas.

Homeless individuals in Houston County, according to AmeriCorps member Jarius Sanford, are not discussed enough.

The reason we're doing this, according to Sanford, is in part to ensure that they feel included as well. "I do believe it is sort of ignored and they too are humans and they have needs as well," she says.

According to the 4-H representative for Houston County, 4-H's goal is to empower kids to give back to their neighborhood.

Additionally, they are asking all K–12 kids, regardless of whether they attend a public, private, or homeschool, to take part in the initiative.

Toiletries, snacks, literature, little toys, and even small backpacks themselves are required for the backpacks.

Sanford expresses his hope that the community will recognize the excellent deeds carried out by the participating kids.

"I simply look forward to having everyone participate," says Sanford. "For people to realize that children are committed to giving back to their town and seeing you know the significance of giving and being there in your community."

This year-long contribution drive will take place.

You can drop off backpacks at 2030 Kings Chapel Rd Perry, GA 31069.
