It didn't take much for a local group of women to find a way to help the homeless.

 

Recently, a group of about 9 women got together to assemble some  "small bags of kindness” consisting of personal hygiene items and snacks to give to any homeless person they see on the street.

 

Organizer Lisa Smith says they've gotten so much interest in the project, they are considering making many more.  "We’re really lucky, we're able to secure donations from Rebound Physical Therapy of lip balm; and Aesthetic General Dentistry in Redmond donated the toothbrushes. So I guess, I think if we could get additional supplies donated by local businesses and individuals, we could definitely do it on a larger scale."

 

Smith came up with the idea after seeing a similar project on the Internet.

 

She says they hope their small acts of kindness will inspire others to do the same to help those down on their luck.
