Hello friends and potential strangers,
I'm here to organize a small one-off care package drop for a handful of Orlando's homeless population. With your help, I'll be organizing 24 care packs, which I will hand out both when given the opportunity or by seeking individuals out. Each package will be delivered in a large plastic zip-lock to include:
-1 Small Mouthwash
-2 Small Toothpastes
-1 Pack Kleenex
-1 Pair Socks
-1 Pair fingerless gloves (half-fingered)
-2 Small Containers hand sanitizer
-2 Chewy Bars
-2 Additional Snacks (variety pack; pretzels, nuts, cheez-its, etc)
-1 Small Chef Boyardee Ravioli
-A bottle of water (purchased outside this effort)
And since I can't get individually wrapped silverware under for less than 250 count and ramping this GFM up, I'll be asking local businesses willing to donate a handful to help (for tips or a purchase back, of course). Or I'll tell them I'm just insanely clumsy with my silverware on a to-go order.
The Amazon list for this puts the total at $360.38, photos below. I am hoping to have this funded in the next week, to allow time for deliveries to arrive and packages to be made and given. Any additional funds (or if this lands far under target) will be donated directly to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida (https://www.centralfloridahomeless.org/), who provides housing and public service to children and families in need. Proof to be uploaded upon donation.
Thank you, and Merry Chr.... Happy Han.... Have a Good December.
