“I Care” Care Packages for the Homeless

Large sandwich bags are also effective!

Next, you have to stuff them. Stores such as five and below, target, walmart, and the dollar store offer cheap travel size toiletries. You can fill your bags with toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, brushes, Kleenex pocket tissues, Tide-to-go, socks, shampoo, wipes, snacks, bottled water, mouthwash, gum, etc.

You can also get other Greeks involved and the rest of your school. Set up donation boxes in the dorms and social areas(the student union). Any little bit counts! Once you’re all finished, you can drop the packages off to your local shelter.

Host a Penny Drive!

Over a 5 day span, ask your peers and professors to drop their spare pennies into your jar! You’ll be surprised how much you can raise in 5 days!
