Patients and Staff at the Arizona State Hospital are working with the Phoenix Rescue Mission again this year to create Blessing Bags.  They’re large gallon sized Ziploc bags filled with basic necessities which will be handed out by the Phoenix Rescue Mission to the homeless.  But they need some donations to get going. 

The Hospital team has placed boxes to collect the items in various areas around the Hospital and in the lobby of our 150 Building. They need donations of: gallon size Ziploc bags, chap stick, packages of tissues, toothbrushes, mouthwash, shampoo (small sizes), combs, soap, band aids, hand-wipes, socks, gift cards for retail stores, trail mix, granola bars, crackers, and/or gum or mints. 

Anything on the list above that you can bring in over the next week or so will really help.  Take some time this weekend  to rifle through your bathroom drawers and make some room while helping out with this effort.  Of course, you could also take a trip through a Dollar Store and help stock that way too.
