After reading James, Senior Jamie Henderson and her Sabbath School (who meet at CA at 10:15) felt compelled to address the awkward situation of having nothing to give the homeless begging on roadsides. They’ve decided to hand out care bags. Henderson states, “It’s not only an opportunity to help out the world, but ourselves as well.”

James 2:15 says, “Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

Henderson and her class are taking action. There is a collection box inside of Mrs. Foster’s room as well as a jar at the front desk for money or gift cards.

A few items to consider donating (a full list is located beside the collection box): toothbrushes, toiletries, feminine products, snacks, gift cards, clothes, etc.

If you are unable to donate but still would like to participate, talk to Henderson and she can give you some bags to put into your car to pass out to those in need.

“Putting your faith in action doesn’t require a huge service project, but it can be as small as smiling at a stranger and striving to make someone’s day brighter,” Henderson said.
