The Donation Box for 12-13-14

The Donation Box for 12-13-14

We had a few single items and some Enfagro samples we received to make The Donation Box for 12-13-14 so it’s a box of odds and ends, mostly from couponing at the drug stores. We did have several of the Combat in the stockpile that we had most likely gotten for free at Walmart at some point. I forgot all about those and remembered them just in time to add them to this group of odd items. They go well, don’t you think? hehe Here in the south, everyone ends up with an ant problem at some point so I figured some of those would be a welcomed addition at the co-op.

We hope everyone is wrapping up their holiday shopping and starting to settle in to enjoying the warm festive feeling of the holiday season. We’ll be heading on our vacation soon to do a little relaxing ourselves. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, we hope everyone slows down to remember this is a time of giving and love. Enjoy your family and friends. Help out someone you don’t know. Reflect on the good things in your lives. Dish out some hugs and smiles and enjoy what you get in return.

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. If you choose to donate money to charitable causes, be sure to check out the organization and donate by going directly to the website. Please don’t click on solicitation links in your email, and remember that they never need your social security number or bank routing info! Sadly, there will always be people out there taking advantage of other’s generosity… especially during the holiday months!

The Donation Box for 11-24-14
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 (normally) 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!
