The Donation Box for 9-28 Looks Much Better This Week!

We managed to sort through the pile of groceries that had been collecting on our table from several different shopping trips so we had a nice amount of items for the donation box for 9-28. The pasta and cereal is always in demand at the food banks so we were glad to add some to our box.  A couple of the boxes of cereal in our pantry had just passed the date so we added those in too. We want to remind you that some items like cereal and dry goods that have “sell by” or “best if used by” dates are still accepted past that date at food pantries.  If you’re unsure, check with your local charity before throwing it away!

The Donation Box
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!

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