The Donation Box for 2-21-15

The Donation Box for 2-21-15

The donation box for 2-21-15 just happened to be a personal hygiene theme. In the last couple weeks there have been some great deals on shampoo and conditioner plus some other necessities that are traditionally in high demand. We have plenty of these items in our stockpile so we just purchased these with the donation box in mind. We also donated a nice extra large print bible (not shown) that we ordered for free a while back.

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!

Here’s what was in The Donation Box for 2-21-15

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!

Do you do something similar? We’d love to read about it in the comments section!
