-- Helping Bags is an established charity for the homeless in San Diego founded August of 2014 by Evan Pickens and has been 99% self-funded. Helping Bags has handed out hundreds of free bags to the homeless every single month. As we've continued our mission and staying true to our cause we've learned a lot about many different types of people and how they got into the situation they've found themselves in. We've been lucky enough to help a few along the way with driving them to homeless shelters they couldn't walk to and providing them with a list of government services they didn't know were available.
We're eager to keep this going in San Diego while also very excited to expand into the Los Angeles area. Both cities will receive free bags of goods for the homeless on the last weekend of the month. We've learned a lot in San Diego so everyone at Helping Bags is excited to see what Los Angeles will share.
Helping Bags hopes to reach other cities shortly and bring awareness to the every growing homeless epidemic. To learn how you can help visit our website: http://helpingbags.com
