Inspired by a desire to serve the homeless, a few students start a ministry. The idea began with a desire to serve the homeless people on the side of the street. In trying to care for them, a few SFC students began putting bags together containing a water bottle, socks, wipes, power bar, and tooth brush to hand out to the homeless. Wanting to multiply efforts, SFC sophomore, Kellen Sandvik purchased 300 drawstring backpacks with the Pass-A-Bag logo, and developed a website to present the idea in a simple way (www.Passabag.org ). The vision of Pass-A-Bag is to fill as many cars as possible with care packages to give to the homeless on the street through communities. “Eventually I would love to see people planning events in their neighborhood, school, church, to come together to package bags,” Kellen Sandvik enthusiastically states. “The ultimate goal is that if anyone has the need to beg on the side of the street, very shortly they would be provided with necessary materials. Also, putting Bible verses in the bags spreads the love of Christ, which really is more important than the bag itself.”
