The Story

blessed by a brown paper bagBlessed by a Brown Bag is a ministry that started when GPTH’s CEO Rena Brewer saw a need to reach out and assist the homeless population in South Georgia. Rena felt that not only could her community work offer physical nourishment, but it could offer spiritual nourishment as well. Because of this need, the Brown Bag Ministry was created.

How You Can Help

Always be prepared to help someone in need by having a “brown bag” of food in the back seat of the car. This bag must be durable and deliver food for the body and “food for the soul.” The ministry can provide you with a logo-ed waterproof “book bag”. The suggested contents include: nonperishable food items, bottles of water, socks, chapstick, hand wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste and a small bible.
