Marcelle Bitner helps her son Aiden, 4, pick out things to put into his "Smile Bag" at the pavillion in Oldfield in Bluffton.  Smile bags are ziploc bags filled with items that might be useful to a homeless person and she keeps the bags in her car to give out whenever she sees a homeless person.  Bitner started making smile bags a few months ago to try and teach her son that it is important to give back.
