Hello my name is Caitlin Austin and I have decided to start my own mission project this year. I have called it Homeless in Seattle.
I am trying to raise money to buy gift packages for the homeless. The gift packages will be filled with scarves, gloves, socks, food, toiletries and a warm and loving Christmas card.
Shelters are packed full this year and those left on the streets are cold and hungry. I want to help them in any way that I can. So, I am asking for donations of money new gloves, scarves, small presents for adults, blank
Christmas cards, toiletries or anything that could be included in a warm gift box for a homeless person.
Before Christmas day I want to deliver the boxes personally to people in Seattle. I will be making a picture slideshow of my delivering to show the helpful members of our community how teens can make a difference when effort is put forth.
