For Zoe’s Silver Award project, she hand-sewed and filled 60 bags of basic necessities for homeless people in the Colorado Springs/Monument area. Each bag contained a toothbrush, tube of toothpaste, dental floss, deodorant, bar of soap, washcloth, lip balm, granola bar, bottle of water, shampoo, and sunscreen.
Zoe solicited local businesses like cesspool pumping huntington ny, family, and friends for donations of all materials.
After sewing and filling the bags, Zoe and her friends and family kept the bags in their cars to hand out to people in need they see along their way. click to investigate more about their cars.
Everyone associated with this project thought a lot about the many struggles of living out on the streets. There are so many things that we take for granted, but for someone who doesn’t have such basic necessities, they can seem like extravagant luxuries. Even a simple bar of soap can be extremely helpful.
