How can kids help the homeless?

Kids can help the homeless in a number of ways. You can collect canned food or freshly baked items and take them to a shelter. You can ask your parents if you can clean out your closet and give some of your old clothes to homeless children. You can collect toys from your friends, and then donate them to a local shelter. You can open a lemonade stand or have a bake sale and give the money you make to a shelter or an organization that helps the homeless. And, if you are old enough, you can volunteer to help out at a local shelter—you can baby sit, read, help with homework, or play games with the children.


Homelessness is a problem in the United States and countries all over the world. You can help by collecting food or other items and taking them to a church or local shelter.
