Each year in January, our Pathfinder Club makes lunches and we take them downtown (Chicago) and pass them out to the homeless living on the streets. We also collect socks, hats, gloves, blankets and other clothing to pass out. The people we feed really appreciate the hot chocolate, food and clothing. Our Pathfinders also get a lesson on appreciating what we have!

When I lived in Virginia our club did the same thing in Washington DC. I don't know of anything else that had a greater impact on the kids than that. On one occasion, a homeless man arrived just as the last pair of socks was being handed out. He said that he really needed a pair of socks, so one of our PF's took off the ones he was wearing and gave them to him. That act of kindness had an impact on everyone who heard about it.
