PULSE Teams Fill Bags for Homeless

New Orleans PULSE Team members show off their bags for the homeless.

Louisiana Right to Life’s PULSE teams had a wonderful, full year of pro-life advocacy, and this Christmas season focused on the dignity and worth of one of the more vulnerable members of our human community at the other end of life, the homeless.

Ahead of the New Orleans and Northshore PULSE Team Christmas meetings, each student committed to bringing at least 20 of a certain item, choosing from granola bars and other healthy snacks, chapstick, socks, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hand wipes, or water bottles.

Students came from Brother Martin, Ursuline, Academy of the Sacred Heart, various homeschool groups, UNO, Loyola, and Southeastern. At the meetings, we put together these items in gallon ziplock bags and hand-wrote Christmas letters with positive messages for each bag. The students brought enough supplies for about 60 bags!

St. Tammany PULSE Team had a “sweet” Christmas party.

The meetings also included dinner, Christmas sweets, and an overview of all of the pro-life activities coming up in the New Year. The Northshore Team additionally enjoyed gourmet candy and coffee ice cream floats at The Candy Bank in Mandeville.

At the end of each meeting, students divided the bags equally between the attendees to store in their cars in order to give them out to the homeless on the road during the holiday season.

Louisiana Right to Life is proud of the PULSE students’ commitment to helping the poor and vulnerable in our city!
