It's hard to imagine not having ready access to every day things such as a tooth brush and tooth paste, kleenex or other personal care items for most of us. However, there are many out there who don't. Inspired by the daughter of Dan and Rachael Polakovic, The Agency decided to create "blessing bags" as a way to give back to those in need over the holiday season.
"We pulled together as a team and collected donations of personal care items, put them in reusable bags and back packs then gave them to a local London group of friends that distributed them to people in need on the streets of London" Says, Rachael Polakovic Broker of Record with The Agency Real Estate Brokerage in London
" What an incredibly humbling experience. The excitement on someone's face when they opened a back pack filled with warm socks, razors and hand soap"
So what is a "blessing bag" ? It is a bag (preferrably re-usable as they are needed also) filled with personal care items that are not easily accessible to those living in harsh conditions or on the street.
Tissue, Combs, Soap, Tampons, Sanitary Towels, Socks, Underwear, Deodorant, Re-usable water bottles.
"We will continue this annual blessing bag drive moving forward every holiday season." Dan Polakovic Sales Representative explains. " In fact we even create extra bags to keep handy in our vehicles every day of the year. There are so many people out there struggling to choose between eating or considering personal hygiene or care. If we can give them back some of their dignity with a simple gift, then we are going to do it."
