On 11 December 2013, a nice person with a Reddit name that I censored published a photograph of some sample packages that he or she made to give to the homeless. The packages were see-through zip-lock baggies, and the contents included deodorant, gloves, granola bars and other snacks, hat, thermal boot socks, and toothbrush. Redditor nomnomswedishfish commented, “As a community nurse and as a volunteer at homeless shelters, I think [hospital] masks and little individual hand sanitizer bottles are very helpful donation items. Homeless shelters are rather crowded and virus[es] can spread quickly. New underwear is another useful item because we can’t/won’t give homeless shelters used underwear. The thought of donating underwear never occurred to me until I started volunteering. There’s a severe shortage of new underwear because people (understandably) just don’t think of that. It is very nice of you to make these awesome packages!” Other Redditors suggested that such items as Chapstick, feminine sanitary products, Bandaids, gloves, wet wipes, and chemical hand warmers would be appreciated.
