Homeless Blankets is a recent project that my youth group and I have participated in. I, being the youth council president at Park Hill Baptist Church, suggested that we give more of our time to the community around us. I proposed the idea of making blankets for the homeless people in down town Kansas City. Everyone agreed that this was a great idea and we planned on doing it that next winter. So when winter came around we started the project. Our group made blankets and then later that week we got together with a group already helping out the homeless in our area and we went around downtown with them and passed out our blankets. Because of this idea I had suggested, other members of the church got involved as well and gave us blankets to give away, and bags of personal care items to pass out as well. It started with just an idea I had, and branched out as a way for the whole church to help out some people in need, and we are already planning on doing it again.
