Our Work With Helping SouthEast

Helping SouthEast is a small non-profit group that provides free and extremely affordable items to those living in poverty in South East Roanoke.

I was approached by Deone and Kathy, a couple of ladies that help run the organization and was asked if we could start making some Blessing Bags for the group.

They head out each Saturday morning in the city and they setup tables, pop-up tents and the like to auction off small items to the community and to provide free items that people need.

Each week, these ladies are heading out into the community to try and make a difference and The Blessing Bag Program is pleased to help out by creating bags for their clients. They pass them out as needed and many are extremely grateful for them too!

People really love the snacks and the foil packs of tuna that we place in them. Kathy, who we meet on a regular basis said that one gentlemen was so overwhelmed with our blessing bags he asked for another. Back in the summer of this year we received a large pack of tuna from someone that donated to the program and the guy living in SE hadn't had meat in a long time.

As crazy as that sounds he was so happy just to have tuna, something that's affordable to most and in plenty in each super market.

These ladies work hard each week and they run a Facebook page where people can offer items for sale, all the proceeds go back into the program to keep providing things that people in poverty need.

Thank YOU ladies FOR EVERYTHING that you do there in the South Eastern part of Roanoke! What You are doing IS making a difference!
