Two student organizations at Wayne State University Law School collected items and put together 150 care packages for people who are homeless and at risk of homelessness.

Members of Wayne Law’s Medical and Health Law Society and Homeless Not Helpless organization spent Thursday night, Nov. 17, putting together care packages at Tony V’s Tavern in Detroit.

Organizing the service project were Wayne Law student organization leaders Vice President Albert Asciutto and President Katelyn Young, both of the Medical and Health Law Society, and Joseph Campbell, president of Homeless Not Helpless. Asciutto and Young are second-year students. Campbell is a third-year student.

The Blessing Bag Service Project raised money and product donations from individuals and companies. The groups set a goal of 100 bags, but surpassed that, collecting enough items for 150 bags. Each bag includes a toothbrush, toothpaste, a bottle of water, a granola bar, fruit snacks, disposable wipes, hand warmers, a blanket and socks.

The student groups will be delivering the bags to the Greater Detroit Coalition’s Homeless Not Helpless project for distribution across Detroit, with an emphasis on Midtown.
