Here is my health and beauty donation for Couponing for Community. It’s been many months since my last donation, so we had quite a stash.
A couple of years ago (pre-layoff/coupon era), I would have never thought this was possible. I’ve been thinking a lot about how couponing has changed my perspective on giving. Since most of the items above were free or nearly free, giving has become something that is just second nature and so much fun.
I plan on giving some of this to the Keystone Opportunity Center. The rest I am going to give to a woman in our church who is heading up a project for a low income housing community in our area. They are looking for many of the items that we are giving, so I’m excited to share!
Now for some important news for my local readers:
I am inviting you to come out to an event being held for the Keystone Opportunity Center on Saturday, May 8 to drop off your donations. They will be collecting the food for Stamp Out Hunger, but will also be taking health and beauty products and donations for their clothing exchange.
I would love to meet you there any time between 12 and 4 on Saturday. The event is actually being help up the street at 142 Main Street in Souderton, Pa. at the old Wellington Sporting Good Store. (The sign is still up.)
I know it would be easier just to leave a bag by your mailbox, but I would be delighted to meet you (just promise you’ll let me get a picture with you, ok?).
If you can come, here are some items that I know would be a great help:
- summer clothes for their clothing exchange
- items like deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, etc.
- non-perishable food items
If you plan on coming, could you leave a comment or send me an e-mail at kaleyandwes @ chachingonashoestring.com (remove spaces)? It will help me plan ahead. (Plus I’d like to share some info about another fun event up the street for your kids!)
