The Donation Box for 12-7 ~ Our Christmas Delivery
We didn’t get our food and personal items box delivered this week but we did a different version of the donation box for 12-7. We were running a little behind and we wanted to make sure to get the presents wrapped and delivered to the family we adopted for the holiday. We have visited with this family a couple times and I have to say they are so very inspiring. We are definitely better for having met them. We have previously taken a load of food and personal items to them, but after meeting and learning what their three children like, the Christmas shopping was easy. The thing that warms my heart is that I know for a fact that this wonderful family will pay it forward when they are stable again.
Many places have programs to adopt a family for Christmas and if not for a specific family there is surely a toy drive. If at all possible, do a little something for a family who has hit hard times and is struggling to get back on their feet. It’s a wonderful feeling to put a smile on someone’s face.

|If you’re new and/or 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 all week 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!|
