I want to help the homeless and needy but don’t know how.?

I want to help the homeless and needy but don't know how.?

why dont you speak to your teachers at the school? if they focus on helping the needy they probably know of charity organizations that you could go to. Maybe they could organize a school trip once a month where you go and help in a soup kitchen, or go play with orphans, help out at old age homes by reading and speaking with the old people. I think the T-Shirts idea is a good one but you'll need to find a sponsor for that, maybe by selling the T-Shirts to people that can be a way to raise money and then use that money to help the homeless and needy. I suggest getting an adult/adults/school to help you with this cause, its a great cause and I can say that I'm very proud of people who think of others needs and want to help. Always remember though that to help others you need to help yourself too, so you need to concentrate on your school work and your chores, always make time for yourself and your needs and look after yourself for your future too!

Your school could consider hosting a 'winter warmer' dance for example at the school where people buy tickets for the dance (which then goes to a charity of your choise) or people may come to the dance but they need to bring jerseys, blankets, socks, hats etc and then the school organises to have a day where you go and give the needy people whatever you have recieved. We did that when I was in school and got to dress up in civies (plain clothes) if our class brought the most items which is a fun, competative and also help our the needy. You could also do this with non perishable food items, get people in the community to come and help, ie. if you hold this giveaway in a park (advertise) then people can bring more stuff if they like, the homeless and needy can come and pick up a blanket or a jersey or shoes (first or second hand) and if people like hairdressers, doctors or nurses are willing they can set up a stand for the day and give the needy medical checks, maybe perscriptions if needed, give them haircuts or just washing their hair, have basins around for them to wash up in as well. They will feel so special and whoever joins in and helps with get major credit in the community as well. You could also set up games, like chess or have books for them to read (or donate the books to them), if there are kids have some toys if they can be donated for the kids to play with and take home. Also try and get local food vendors to participate and give out hotdogs or any type of food. Just be sure not to give them money, whatever money is raised needs to be turned into something like food, blankets, toys, clothes etc.

Good luck and all the best! I hope everything works out!
