New Record! Saved $196.66, Spent only $1.79!! All Items to Be Donated!
I could hardly wait to share my shopping trip to Publix today with you! To see the shopping cart overloaded with items, I couldn't help but think about the people we see each week waiting in a long line for the co-op doors to open, or the homeless men that help us unload food at the Quinn House. I am grateful to God for working through each of us to do what we can to help the needy! To know that 32 boxes of Yakisoba noodles, 22 4-pks of YoPlus, 4 4pks of Fiber One, 12 boxes of Quaker Instant Oatmeal, 16 packs of Stayfree pantyliners,16 bags of Halls, and 1 bag of Kraft Mac N Cheese were purchased for only $1.79 is nothing short of a miracle.
