The Donation Box for 11-24-14
In putting together the donation box for 11-24-14 we’ve decided to do smaller, more frequent boxes for the next couple weeks as we gather the items. We’re playing a little catch-up right now, but better late than never right? Instead of our Saturday deliveries, we’ve decided to do several throughout the weekdays for now.
There’s been some great sales on mayo lately so this should come in handy for lunches while the kids are out of school. We hope everyone can pick up just one extra something to give to your work food drive or neighborhood food drive. This time of year, most organizations are doing some sort of food collection campaign. Many times it’s in the form of a contest. Be sure to check with your employer or local churches!
To find local organizations to donate food and personal items, search Feeding America or Food Pantries. You can also inquire at local churches. They can usually suggest a local organization or they may have a food pantry of their own.
Here’s what was in The Donation Box for 11-24-14
2 Pancake Syrup
2 Miracle Whip
4 Lipton Tea Bags
2 Campbells Healthy Request Soup
1 Newman’s pasta sauce
|If you’re not familiar with what The Donation Box is, this is a box we keep in a corner of our house that we add items to for a Saturday morning delivery to the local Co-op Ministries . Since we’ve been couponing, we have grown a nice stockpile of items so now we try to put some aside and do our small part to help others. (You can view our other delivery posts here). Other than a little extra time, there is no reason for us to pass up a free or ridiculously cheap deal… we know someone needs those items! Our boxes usually include a combination of things we purchased the current week and items from our stockpile that we have overstocked. We hope we inspire others to do the same! Whether it’s a donation of money, time, or items.. it all matters to someone!|
