Illinois' Local Deputy Hands over Backpack to those in need

A Rock Island County’s local deputy, Tim Ott, recently launched the Catholic Care Packs project, which aims to help provide one backpack to the people who have no where to go.

The motivation behind this project was the suffering which people released from Rock Island County’s jail had to undergo. They had to carry the whole of their life in one plastic bag. So, Ott began with providing basic necessities like toiletries and other such things to these people. Slowly, this project took form of a backpack with numerous other essentials too.

These backpacks are called the Catholic Care Packs, since they contain a lot of content which is way more than what was initially planned and started with. Since you can now find best deals on backpacks online, arranging them was never a hectic task. Also, members of various churches in Rock Island helped fill these backpacks with some essentials and motivational letters. Plus, these backpacks are marked with the red tape to help them identify in the dark as well.

Each backpack is first blessed at Sacred Heart Church, and then delivered to police stations, fire stations, and other such areas nearby. Whenever someone from these stations is met with a person who is in need of the bags, they are delivered to those people.

With time, Tim Ott is also planning to make fire stations a central hub where these backpacks of basic supplies would be refilled. This way, he is really happy of being able to provide something to the community besides just asking “How was your day?”.
