Holiday Presents for the Homeless

  • Dec 10, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • SoupMobile

Make Sure Homeless People Get a Christmas Present -- You’re Homeless at the holidays. Imagine the joy that comes with an unexpected gift “just for me”.


Guess What? This holiday season the SoupMobile is handing out gift boxes made by you, their SoupElves, filled with inexpensive items to make life on the streets a little easier. How many total gifts do we need for 1,000 homeless people? 1,000!

Yes, I said 1,000 gift boxes! To make wishes come true for your homeless person, wrap a shoe box with top and bottom wrapped separately, with a flat ribbon around it to hold it together.

Fill your box with items a homeless person can carry with them and enjoy. Here are just a “few” ideas: tube socks, gloves, pens, notepad, stationery with stamps, travel-size kleenex, playing cards, small plastic or cloth storage bag, comb, disposable stick razors, chapstick, sunscreen, toiletries, toothbrush and toothpaste, pre-moistened wipes, bandaids, several safety pins and paper clips, baggies for wet soap, travel-size sewing kit, plastic poncho, pocket-sized raincoat, umbrella, small flashlight and batteries, small radio and batteries, $5 or $10 prepaid credit card, McDonald’s gift certificates, prepaid phone card, small bible, granola bars, fruit sticks, hard candy to fill in the cracks.

You can put a message or greeting card in your box but do not include your last name, address, or phone number.

Please, no chocolate, glass, breakables, used stuff, knives, aspirin or meds, liquids, or aerosols.

Drop off your gift at the SoupMobile, 3017 Commerce St in Deep Ellum, 8:30-11 M-F.
Please deliver your gift to the SoupMobile by December 21. Or you can bring your gift December 8 and December 15 to Saturday Sandwiches & Chips & Cookies.

The SoupMan and SoupElves will deliver your gift in person to brighten the holiday of a homeless person.

May your holidays be blessed and full of joy!
Best wishes from the SoupMobile
David Timothy, aka The SoupMan

    hi, made this a project for friends and coworkers at UNT and JCP. Am excited to drop off 4 wonderfully stuffed boxes tomorrow morning. Will be sure to let them know it is donated through RAK. Also, was able to volunteer for the Kids Christmas Party. Thank you for sharing so many great opportunities for us to make a difference.
