Use the $$$ you save to help others!
YMCA Operation Backpack: Purchase a new backpack (or get one for free after MaxPerks at OfficeMax). Fill it with the recommended supplies from the website. Write a note of encouragement to put in the backpack. Drop of the backpack at a Greater Houston area YMCA by August 15th. Smile. You helped a child.
Undies for Everyone: Donate unused underwear and socks for children in the Houston area, so they can have a "fresh start" this school year. Click the link to find drop-off locations.
School Supply drive Ecclesia Houston: My church is a drop off location for school supplies that will go to local Iraqi refugee children. Address: 2115 Taft St. Houston, TX 713-622-1846
Please let me about donation drives through your organization or church by leaving all pertinent information in the comment section of this post.
UPDATE: I purchased two backpacks yesterday. One from OfficeMax, which was free with MaxPoints and one from Ross for $4.99. The best place to find cheap supplies close by is Walgreen's. I'm itching to get to Wal-Mart, but we'll see if I make it out there today!
