We were able to support the 2018 City of Boston Homeless Census!

45 teams went out to deliver our Blessing Bags throughout the City of Boston! I was able to join with Boston Police School Unit to deliver bags to people experiencing homelessness around Boston Common and Downtown Crossing. The 500 plus Blessing Bags we made a HUGE impact that evening to support people most in need. We were able to spread our Blessing Bags to many Veterans through the Homeless Census as well as through the Veterans Association.
