One thought on “A Handout Kit For Neighbors”

  1. I think it’s a good idea to keep something on hand for your neighbors and loved ones who may come to you. If financially possible, these extra measures should be taken. No one wants to turn away Uncle Bob into the Apocalyptic nightmare because there isnt enough beans to go around.
