500 Blessing Bags for those in Need

Hello friends!  We are having an event this week to make 500-600 Blessing Bags to pass out to those in need.   Bags will be reusable drawstrings bags with a care package inside.  I need your help!  
We will use the funds to buy TRAVEL-SIZE items in bulk to make the bags.  
TRAVEL-SIZE Items needed: Applesauce, Band-Aids, Bars, Kids Handmade Cards, Combs, Deodorant, Fruit Leather, Gum, Hand Sanitizer, Instant Oatmeal Singles, Lip Balm, Lotion, Mouthwash, Pads/Tampons, Paper/Pens, Prayer Cards, Q-tips, Razors, Shampoo, Thermal Socks, Tissue, Toothbrush/Toothpaste set, Trailmix, Vit c drops/powder, Warmers for hands or feet, Water bottle, Wipes
++++ Update: we have reached goal on Socks, Gloves, Oatmeal, granola bars & Fruit snacks!

This way we all have these in our cars to hand out to people in the streets and join together with local shelters to hand out to those most in need.  

We would love kids to contribute by making a Happy Handmade card to include in the bags.  What a better way to add sunshine to the bag than a drawing with a sweet note from a child! Messages such as You are loved, You are special, I said a prayer for you today, Someone is thinking of you….
