3rd Mobile Food Drive-734 Items!!!!!

First off, thank you to every single person who donates to our monthly food drives. To have a vision, and see it come alive month after month is indescribable! On Thursday, "Clipping for a Cause" gathered and donated 734 ITEMS that were distributed among three different organizations. If this is the first time you have heard about a "Mobile Food Drive," the concept is simple. It's very similar to the Salvation Army's way of gathering donations. Neighbors, friends and community members are asked to place a bag on non-perishables outside of their doors to be picked up and delivered for them. If interested, please contact me! As part of our effort to "stock the shelves," we do this once a month!

In April, all personal hygiene items benefited the residents at the Villa Lodge and Suites in Lawrenceville. Nearly 200 items from soap, toothpaste, razors, medicines, dishwashing liquid, vitamins, etc. were delivered to these families in need!

All cold/freezer items were delivered to The Quinn House of Lawrenceville. Employees at the Quinn House care for and prepare food for 40people each day. There is a need for everything and I absolutely love going there. They are so gracious and thankful for everything.

All non-perishable food was donated to the Southeast Gwinnett Co-op. In an effort to reach out to as many different people, we rotate non-perishable donations between the Lawrenceville and Southeast Gwinnett Co-ops each month. Over 400 items were donated during this mobile food drive to Southeast Gwinnett Co-op!

  1. I love it! You know what I saw first? The vanilla Oreos I donated. HA! You can't know how many times I wanted to eat them myself. Seriously, seeing it up close and seeing the numbers just makes it that much more exciting, doesn't it? Whoo hoo!
