A chance to help others

Hi all. Got the following from a fellow reader Kristin. This would be a great way to help others if you've got a lot of extra stockpile items. Check out the info....

The reason that I am emailing you is because I am a volunteer with the American Cancer Society and the Hope Lodge in Marshfield is in need of donations. I know as couponers we are able to get alot of things for cheap or almost free. Here is some information about the Hope Lodge:

"The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in Marshfield makes the stay away from home just a little easier for those being treated for cancer. The Hope Lodge creates an environment that eases both the stress of the cancer journey and the financial challenge of receiving lifesaving treatment. WIth 22 rooms available, guests at the Marshfield Hope Lodge will save nearly $500,000 in hotel expenses this year."

I have attached a list of items that they are in need of. If anyone has any questions they can email me at or call me at 608-369-1655.

Thank you -

Here are the items currently in need....

Reusable storage containers, bags in various sizes
High quality plastic flatware
Large, heavy glasses
Dishwashing soap
Dishwasher detergent
Aluminum foil
Plastic wrap
Heavy duty plates, bowls, cups
Laundry detergent
Fabric Softener

Snow scrapers
Light bulbs – 60W and 3-way

If you are able to help out, you can contact Kristin directly via email (listed above) or you can email me. I can be a drop off spot and will collect items in the Portage area. If you are able to give, let's try to get it together by the end of February.

Thanks much if you can help.
