Jarrod & Joelle's Joy- Homeless Care Kits

My name is Jarrod (I'm the one with dreadlocs) and I am 9 years old and this is my sister Joelle, next to me.  We live in Oakland, California and it makes me sad when I see so many people living outside who need help. I get frustrated walking by and not being able to help.

So, I asked my mom if we could get supplies and make homeless care packages I call Jarrod's Joy Care Kits.  I want people who are homeless to know that I care about them and that they are important to the world!

Please help us to buy supplies so I can make more homeless care kits.  My homeless care kits include:

Tampons (2 per bag)
Sanitary napkins (2 per bag)
Apple sauce (1)
Granola bar(1)
Nail care kit (1)
Crackers (1 pack)
Antibacterial wipes(one ten pack)
Toothpaste (1)
Toothbrush (1)
Orange juice box (1)
Spoon (1)
Gallon ziploc bag (1)
A note of courage and love from me (1)

We want to add blankets and bandaids but we need your donations so we can buy them!

Thank you for helping me help the homeless.
