Holiday Boxes for the Homeless

Leadership Corps Period 3

Holiday Boxes

The service we chose was the Holiday Boxes by the Stewpot, and what we did was fill empty shoe boxes with supplies that would help the homeless and people in need. We chose this organization because it is one that helps out people in our immediate DFW area, and we thought this was different and it was very fun to do.

Who/Why?

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.
