Neighborhood Teams Up to form "Clipping for a Cause!"

Thanks to Lee C. for sending me a copy of the "Ashbury Exchange," which is her neighborhood newsletter! I thought I would share this with you, as Lee is not only a local member of "Clipping for a Cause," but she has taken things a step further and gotten her neighbors involved in the effort! For those of you who are not close to Atlanta, but would still like to get involved in your own way but aren't quite sure how, please take the time to read this excerpt taken from the newsletter! Thanks Lee for everything you are doing!

"Ashbury Neighbors Help Fight Hunger"
Did you know that something you might otherwise throw in the trash or put in your recycling bin can help feed those in need? Clipping for a Cause (a ministry of Lawrenceville First UMC) is transforming coupons into cheap (or free) items such as milk, yogurt,canned goods, rice, cereal, pasta, shampoo, deodorant, razors and lots more! All these items are then donated to local non-profits.
If you have coupon inserts from the newspaper you're not using, please consider donating them to Clipping for a Cause. Just drop them off in the box on the front porch at ******** A huge thank you to our neighbors who are already donating their coupons! To
