If I see someone who's holding a sign saying "hungry", I buy them food and direct them to the nearest church, Salvation Army or whatever facility is closest. I don't care what anyone says, wasn't it Jesus who directed us to feed the hungry and clothe the naked? I don't remember the exact verse, I just try to follow the lesson. Do what you can on your own as well, donate any clothing you can to charity, volunteer at Boys n Girls clubs, talk to your school and ask if they provide help in the form of clothing etc to needy students (ours does), and donate what you can. There is a myriad of ways to help and trust me, you don't have to rely on your Church as your only source of charity to volunteer for. The wonder of it all to me is why don't more people approach life as "how can I help my fellow man" instead of " why should I help my fellow man"
