Items to give to area homeless people

Help me come up with ideas for items that would be needed by the homeless. I see many homeless people on my commute to and from work, usually at stoplights. I never carry cash on me, but would like to keep things in my car that I can give out.

I was thinking about putting the items in bags & handing them out instead of cash. I have a few ideas like bottled water, toothbrush & paste, combs, deodorant, & maybe a box of snack bars. Any items would have to be kept in my car & not spoil. Can you think of any others? Or can you think of any reason why this isn't a good idea? Thanks in advance!
