Giving Back: School Supplies to Donate for $0.55-$1.12!

by Kimberly on August 8, 2011


Yipeee!!! It’s time for my absolute FAVORITE post of the week!  If you’ve taken one of my workshops you know that I am HUGE on ‘Giving Back’ and Blessing others.  I shared a little this past week on my blog my families story and how I got started in couponing and blogging.  During my family’s time of need we were extremely blessed by the ministry of a local food bank and by others giving us care baskets full of groceries.   I am blessed that today I’m able to ‘Give Back’ and bless others out of the abundance I have from couponing. Each week I suggest a few items that can be donated for under $2.  As many of you know I’m focusing on us donating school supplies for the next few weeks.  If you can’t get to a Food Bank…PLEASE donate to a family in need or save them up to donate to your local school so they can give it to kids in need!  WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

To find a Food Bank (FL) near you to donate to CLICK HERE. This list is growing rapidly and I have several counties here in FL now covered. If you know of a food Bank not on the list, please email me so I can get it added. I’d love to start adding other states!! ;-) Thank you!
