*UPDATED* Can You Spare an Item or Two?
Okay lovelies, we know we ask a lot of you guys. Recently we have asked for your generosity in conjunction with Coupons for the Community and the Pay It Forward Sale and the Community Baby Shower. We really have been trying to suck every last bit of charity out of you haven’t we? We do it because we feel so blessed by couponing and we want to pass those blessings on to others.
Please know that we are aware many of you coupon because you are in dire financial situations. We would NEVER think any less of you if you are not in a position to give or if you simply do not care to. We just feel that because we are able to reach a wide audience, it makes sense to give others the opportunity to give back if they are able.
Here is one of those opportunities:
A few readers emailed us to let us know about a non-local mother of 7 young children (one of them a newborn) who recently passed away quite unexpectedly. The father/husband is trying to pick up the pieces as best he can, but their situation is quite dire. Reader Tonya knows the family and is planning a trip to deliver as much food as she can stuff into her vehicle. That’s where you guys come in.
Did you overestimate how many boxes of fruit snacks your family would consume before they expire and now have an excess?
Are you so sick of Fruity Pebbles you can’t see straight?
Does the mere mention of Quaker Instant Oatmeal make you want to gag?
Oh, that’s just me? Good to know! Seriously though, if you have an excess of anything in your stockpile that you would be willing to part with, now is the time to put it to good use.
But you have to act FAST. Tonya is leaving on her trip SATURDAY!! That means we need to get our donations to help this young family to her ASAP. You can drop them off at her house:
7180 N. Linder Rd.
Meridian ID (between State St. and Chinden just on top of the hill)
They aren’t leaving until SATURDAY. So you can still drop donated items all day tomorrow!!!
