The Donation Box for 9-6
The donation box for 9-6 was pretty small this week. We bought several boxes of the Suddenly Salad this week (I love that stuff) but I did have some already so I rotated and thinned it out a little. While I was straigtening the pantry I grabbed a few boxes of Stove Top Stuffing as well. Tommy hates that stuff and prefers to make his own homemade so I know he won’t be cooking it. I like it but he’s the one in the kitchen most nights so I’m sure someone else will be happy to get it! We also have stocked up recently on an assortment of protein bars in addition to some boxes of granola bars so we certainly needed to give some away!
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.
Here’s what was in The Donation Box for 9-6 …
12 Suddenly Salad Past Mix
4 Stove Top Stuffing
6 Berocca Mental Alert Tabs
2 Suave Deodorant
1 So Delicious Dairy Free Milk
18 Protein Snack Bars
|If you’re not familiar with The Donation Box, 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!|
