I want to say a special thank you for the part I Heart Publix played in my family’s holiday giving this year.
Yesterday my kids and I dropped off a carload of groceries to a struggling local family. The mother had been the sole breadwinner for many months. With two teens and two young grandkids to feed, she had gone through all of her resources. There is good news on the horizon, in the form of a new job for her husband. However, she said that she had no food to last until his paychecks started coming and that the local food banks were running too low to help out much.
We were able to give $300+ worth of groceries, spending less than $100. So many charities request cash donations this time of year, but our budget is what it is. Multiplying the impact of our charitable dollars via careful shopping and coupons felt wonderful!
Thanks for sharing, Robbin!
