The Donation Box for 4-5 ~ cereal stockpile slimming
Since it’s Spring break in our area, we filled the donation box for 4-5 with cereal. Many kids will be eating breakfast at home for the next week instead of at school so we decided it was the perfect time to slim down the cereal stockpile from our pantry!
School breaks are a great time to get those donations into your local food pantry! Remember there is an additional burden on families with children who normally eat some of their weekday meals at school for free!
Here’s what was in The Donation Box for 4-5
15 Boxes of Assorted Dry Cereals
3 5hr Energy Drink
3 Arctic Naturals Omega 3
1 Love Your Heart Cardio Support
1 Vaprino Anti-Diarrheal
1 CVS Allergy Relief
1 Zarbees Naturals Seasonal Relief
|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!|
