Twenty-one volunteers from our church braved a very wintery day to sort products and assemble 75 Snuggle Sacks in Fenton on Saturday, January 18. Each sack holds various hygiene supplies, one meal, socks, gloves, and a blanket. Our grateful thanks to all those in the congregation and to the Deacons who donated a large number of supplies for the sacks!
Snuggle Sacks is a new mission outreach opportunity for our church to serve the homeless in Michigan and was founded 4 years ago by Fenton preteen Addisyn Goss and her siblings after discovering their grandfather had been homeless. Addisyn gave us a better understanding of the needs of the homeless and how essential this type of support is to survival. Her family is now distributing about 1000 sacks to the homeless each month on the street and outside homeless shelters. The program continues to expand in Michigan and now Indiana.
