What to do when someone asks you for money on the street
Neighbors Helping Neighbors

One way to honor our neighbors' dignity when donating food or school supplies is to invite them to lead or participate in the process. The mindset of doing with instead of doing for can open the door for mutually beneficial friendships, where everyone learns from and supports one another.

A Meaningful Exchange

Providing opportunities for meaningful exchange when distributing donated items is a great way to honor the God-given strengths and abilities of our neighbors while still providing needed support. We never want our neighbors to feel like charity cases.
