Holiday Boxes May Include:
disposable stick razors

small Bible or book of inspiration
The holiday boxes are sponsored by a church that will send the boxes to help the homeless, at-risk women and men and children in need around the Dallas area. Inside the boxes we put useful necessities that they need to help them survive and help them out this season.This program benefits many people, including our friends in need in our neighborhood. Every year, determined staff of the Stewpot deliver these boxes out to the homeless and families in need on Christmas Eve, and anyone, from individuals to large groups, may donate and help out.
