Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
This is a shout out to all my local couponers. I know you read this article in the ledger http://www.theledger.com/article/20121031/NEWS/121039840?tc=cr. This family is in need of the basics like shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes.... Things we can get for free with coupons. I am working with a freind of the family who has set up a fund to help get these items and we need your help. If you would like to donate items email me and I will even drive to your home and pick them up. For the list of free items with coupons for this week head over to Couponterri.com and look under freebies.
I just raided my pantry and have...
V05 Extra Body shampoo
V05 Extra Body conditioner
Nivea for men body wash
Olay Body wash
if your interested, please email me MelanieAnastasio@gmail.com
Besides personal toiletries, what are the clothing sizes? Will they be staying with relatives after they are released from the hospital? I would love to help out, but need more info on immediate needs. I, too, lost a home to a fire many years ago when my sons were toddlers, so I can well understand the shock from that, but not the loss of family due to the fire. My heart goes out to them.
I have to run to Bartow right now, but i will check on that when I get back. Terri
Going thru my couponing stash already. I love how our couponing community pulls together. I stock up on items like this just so I can help people when I can. I always say "I'm not hoarding, I'm helping others." I will be dropping my load off to a friend of the family today. May God continue to be with the family and bless them.
For those of you who would like to donate clothing I just found out a friend of the family has set up a website at http://gofundme.com/-connetamarit the sizes are there also. You can also donate money. A lot of people are donating a s little as $10.00 but it all adds up. I have set up a drop off point in the middle of town off Florida Ave. Email me if you need the address or I can pick the items up at your home. Thank you to everyone who has responded and the family greatly appreciates you.
