Help Victims of the Tornados in Oklahoma

help tornado victims

Now is the time to help.

As couponers and caring people, we can unite and help out the victims. The saying “something is better than nothing” is not true in this case. They NEED specific items.

Right now, MONEY is what they need. Any amount is good. Any link that I include on here are secure links and are safe and your money will be put to good use.

Monetary Donations:

You can donate any monetary donations via THIS website. This is the United Methodist Church and the money will go directly to those affected.

Donate Your Box Tops to Crestline Elementary- WA

Over the weekend a elementary school in Washington, Crestline Elementary school, burnt to the ground.

There are over 450 displaced kids with no school and no supplies. They are moving them to 5 schools, where the kids will be able to stay with their classmates and teachers, but the district is already over populated and poor. The biggest problem is the supplies are all gone. The building suffered irreparable damage and everything was lost.

Think of everything a school would need to replace, this could get quite pricey! BoxTops have earned our school thousands of dollars, so if you have any Box Tops you can spare, you can send them directly to;

Evergreen School District #114
13501 NE 28th St Vancouver, WA 98682
(360) 604-4000

Thanks I Heart The Mart!

Have You Shopped Your Local Habitat For Humanity ReStore?

Yesterday afternoon myself and our girls went out shopping with my mama. While we were out she said that we needed to stop by the local Habitat for Humanity Re-Store to see if they had a door that she needed for her house. I was completely unaware that there was a store you could purchase items that have been used previous in other homes.  This not only saves items from heading to the landfills, keeps our price down on many products that are in fairly good condition but it also is a way for Habitat for Humanity to make additional funding to keep up the great work they do. What a great place!

Habitat for Humanity provides affordable housing for low income families with a no interest loan. But this isn’t just a hand out. There are many requirements to receive a home from Habitat for Humanity, one being the recipient must complete 500 hours of  “sweat equity” on their own home or another project.

With 2 Billion people worldwide living in poverty Habitat for Humanity is busier more now than ever. And they need your help! Here is how you can help:

  • Serve as a volunteer
  • Donate to your local Habitat For Humanity (building supplies, services, stock, etc) or you can even donate a property
  • Refer a family in need

I was very impressed with the quality and amount of products that were available. They carry new and used items. The used items for the most just needed a good cleaning or painting. Tubs, ceramic tile, windows, doors, cabinets and so much more! Our local store is open Tuesday through Saturday, you can find your local store here!

Stop by and “like” Tri-State Habitat for Humanity on Facebook- if you are local to Ohio, Indian or Kentucky. If not check here to find a location near you!
