I have had several people ask me about donation location ideas here in the North Tampa area…You have NO IDEA HOW HAPPY THIS MAKES ME!!! Yes, coupons are a wonderful thing to help save our families money – but you know that each week there are items that we can get for cheap, free, or even with overage. If you need those items – GREAT – if you don’t I always ask that you consider donating them. There are people everywhere that could use an extra hand every now and then, so why not help when we can?
I think it’s a beautiful concept and I LOVE hearing that others are doing this too. Honestly, it makes me tear up…If we all just took an extra 10 minutes a week (that couple minutes in the store – that couple minutes to drop off the items) can you imagine the lives we could affect?!
These are two places I go to regularly:
Oasis Pregnancy Center – Land O Lakes – I donate baby coupons (there are so many now available on Coupons.com), baby food, and feminine items here
Suncoast Harvest Food Bank – Land O Lakes – I donate everything else here – food, vitamins, personal care items
Here are a few more:
Lutz Pregnancy Center
The Spring – Tampa, FL – Women’s Shelter
Feeding America – Tampa Bay – Food Bank
Kaye Prox Food Bank – Tampa – 33615
Metropolitan Ministries – Tampa – 33602
Village Presbyterian Church – Carrollwood – drop box by Church Office – Thanks Jenni
Also, ask your local church if they have a member that is in need of any extra help at the moment – Cherylann e-mailed me earlier and that’s where her extra stockpile is going this week.
If you know of others or go to others – PLEASE leave them in the comments section here so that I can add them to this post and so that others can see them too!
