The Donation Box for 6-28

Our hands our frozen, but we finally got a box of frozen items together. Almost everything in the Donation Box for 6-28 is frozen. We actually had a little more that we wanted to add but there is only so much room for frozen items where we donate. We’ve been meaning to slim down our frozen stockpile for a couple weeks  and have procrastinated until now. Since the meat that we ordered will be here soon, we were running out of time so we were determined to get that task done. The space that we just made will be filled with our Zaycon Foods order of ground beef and chicken so we’ll be back to a full freezer in no time. We want to stress that if you are thinking about a frozen food donation, please check that your destination does indeed have freezer room!

To find local organizations to donate food and personal items to, 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.

The Donation Box for 6-28
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!
