It's the little things that make a HUGE difference.
Each week buy 10 extra items at the grocery. Once you have 50 items drop off at your local food bank.
You'll need bread, peanut butter, jelly and 50 sandwich baggies. A great family project.
Great project for the kids! Decorate brown paper bags and fill each with a sandwich, chips and fruit for a food bank or shelter.
50 Jars of Peanut Butter - Let folks know that you are trying to donate 50 non-perishable items to your local food bank.
Share those great recipes with your friends and neighbors. Ask your friends to each make a few. 10 families could each make 5 or 25 families each make 2. Deliver to a soup kitchen.
We asked a soup kitchen "What item do you need more than any other?" HOT SAUCE! They can't keep it in stock. The visitors want FLAVOR.
Have a shoe drive. Kids out grow shoes so fast!
Women need the essentials - bras and sanitary pads. Many shelters would be thrilled with your donations. Or send to "I Support the Girls".

SOCKS are the MOST needed, but LEAST donated item at Shelters.
Ask friends and neighbors to clean out their closets. Let them know that you are collecting business clothes.
Have a Purse Drive! Women trying to get back out in the workforce could really use one.
I LOVE SOCCER! So, I donated 50 balls to Provide Inc. Their heroes help those in need around the world. The balls are stuffed into suitcases and delivered to children around the world. A majority of them were delivered to children in three schools in Nepal and India.
Look at this little girl's SMILE!! Her home in Guatemala had recently been destroyed by a Volcano. The family lost everything, including their father who abandoned them after the disaster. When the Provide Inc. heroes arrived to rebuild her home, they gave her a soccer ball.
I gave 50 plus minutes of time to help KindWorks set up an apartment for a family of 5. It was not only heartwarming, but it was creative and FUN! I felt like I was on a decorating game show. All of the household items including couches, beds, art, toiletries and food were all donated.
