Dear InterNations Parents/Aunts/Uncles,

Do you want a fun activity to do with the kids AND help families experiencing homeless AND get credit for volunteer hours WHILE staying safe during these Covid times?

Well, if you answered YES to any of the above, we have a really meaningful activity for you!!!

What will you do together?
You will create breakfast bags for families at the Family Gateway. Each breakfast bag will contain personal size (size for 1 person): Our goal is to put together Protected content for the families so feel free to put together as many bags as you can. Please add a post with your name and (how many bags) you and your child/niece/nephew are committing to put together. Example post shown below as Sanjeeb (5).
1 mini cereal box
1 juice
1 non-perishable fruit (such as tangerine or apple),
1 muffin - can be homemade or store bought
This bag of 4 breakfast items should be ~$5

You will put these in a brown paper bag and your kids are encouraged to draw and write messages to the families on the brown bags (see attached pictures on this post). You are responsible for dropping off these bags at the shelter. Shelter staff will get the bags out of our car and into the shelter. You can stay in your car.

Where and when will you drop this off? At Family Gateway, Dallas.

If you can’t drop off or if you have any questions, please email us.
