Some ideas of helpful bag fillers include: wet wipes, deodorant, antibacterial hand gel, the little $1 rain ponchos, hand warmers, chap sticks, band aids, Tylenol/Ibuprofen, sanitary items for women, Kleenex packs, tooth brush/paste, socks, and snacks. Also, every Saturday, Donna makes a soup meal that is available all day for those in need of warm meal. She has started using the Bear Paw Soup Mix from the store.
