Last week, I told you we’d be starting a new donation list feature here on Southern Savers. This is a comprehensive list of anything a food pantry, shelter or other organization would love to have.

Also, in support of Operation Christmas Child, any items that would be good for a shoebox will be highlighted with this gift icon: . Look for it in the weekly store lists throughout the week and here in the donation post on Mondays.

      Jenny, I am so glad you are showing people how to give. That is my heart. This is the only reason I even do the coupon thing. I have been a single mom for 26 years now. My daughter is now married, a great mom to her step daughter and now expecting. I love to give to them, folks in need, just anyone. My daughter has got some of those traits now. God is so good and blesses us, how could we not bless back. And Jenny you and I know it is so much fun even to give through others too. Keep up the good work. You are even giving here. Your time, talent, and HEART. thank you so much. You are the GREATEST and GOD LOVES YOU>

      • Tha503

        Jenny, Thank you so much for adding this. I am in the process of filling boxes for OCC, and was not sure if some items were okay or not. This takes the guesswork out, and helps me to find the best deals out there!

    • Jody

      Awesome, thank you Jenny!

    • elizabeth

      Jenny, thank you for doing this! I love OCC!

      I just checked their website on Samaitan's purse and didn't see what I'm thinking of, but years ago we volunteered at an OCC distribution warehouse, inspecting boxes to make sure the items were appropriate. One thing that stuck out in my mind is them telling us to remove ANY picture, reference, etc. of pigs. Apparently some muslims are offended by pigs and any reference to them, even pictures. I remember having to leaf through coloring books to make sure there were no pigs!

      The reason I'm mentioning this is you suggesting we make a snapfish book w/animal pictures–which I totally think is a brilliant idea–but before someone goes to that trouble, they may want to omit any little piggies. :)

      • Donna

        Thanks for sharing this. Last year, my son packed an OCC box. He loves the game of checkers and wanted to include a game in the box. We found a small travel size checkers/chess game and packed it. We later found out from a missionary to India that some people in India consider chess/checkers to be an evil game. We tracked our box and learned that it went to India. I sure hope somebody took that game out before they shipped it! =(

    • Sarah

      This is awesome! What a wonderful idea. I need to check and see if my neighborhood church does OCC

    • This site is great! I know it takes you a lot of time to create each post. I also have a freebie site and posts can be time consuming. Thanks for taking the time to share.

      You share an excellent principle here: giving. I love giving because it shows God's love.


    • Lisa

      Thank you for adding this one to your blog. Most of the couponing I do is for items I will be donating to one place or another… so this is a BIG help!

    • trudi

      Thanks so much for doing this. Our church collects school supplies and personal hygiene products for kids in the Asheville city school. There are so many places that could use help. Animal shelters, Women's shelters, Salvation Army. Lot's of possibilities. This list makes it so much easier, especially for newbies like me. I'm amazed at how much stuff I'm able to donate.

    • mommy4

      whenit says printable i dont know hoe to do that does it print just that one or all that i picked sorry new to this

      • Ashleyw81

        It will print just the coupon that is available at that particular link. Checking the boxes (I'm assuming that's what you mean by “all that I picked”) is just for you to create a list for your personal use. To print the coupons you'll have to click on each individual link for a coupon that you want to print. Hope this helps!

    • Mom_4_Him

      Does anyone know of a great “drop-off” location for these items in Greenville, SC? Our homeschool group used to have a Food Pantry, but that has dissolved. Every place that I check is “by appointment only.” Thank you.

      • KendraTsongranis

        Chick-fil-a usuallly acts as a drop-off location for operation Christmas Child.

        • LBelleUSC

          I second the chick-fil-a idea. Also, just your local food bank and they can tell you where to go. Greenville tech most likely has a student union thing going on and the local YMCA's always do something. Lots of outlets! If you head to Columbia anytime soon (visit the state museum or something) you can drop off items right at the food bank.

    • Jfmiller82

      this is an awesome list! thank u so much for all u do. :)

    • Paigejade

      Are you sure caugh meds are okay? Remember not to pack anything that could get melty!

      • Kendratsongranis

        The things for donations are the ones with the little present next to it. This is a list of FREEBIES and things ideal for donating, but not everything is ideal for donating. I was confused at first too, and then I read the title of this post again. Hopefully this helps answer your question.

    • Paigejade

      Oh, how embarrassing. Lets try again COUGH meds.

    • Susan Kitchel

      I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this. Donating to the food bank is one of my hobbies. I like to try to find the best deals and for little or no money, I can donate alot of items to my local food bank. You rock!

    • Karichie3

      Loved the RITE AID info. They would not take the entire $1 off Gain though or else it would have been negative balance. BUT I bought a Gain dish soap and a Maybelline Eye Shadow Trio and paid $0.36. Amazing!!

      • Melissa

        They should have adjusted it down to 89 cents. It shows RIGHT IN THE AD that there's a manufacturer's coupon in the Sunday paper to make it free!

    • Athena

      I hate it that we don't have a rite aid in Arkansas. I live in NLR and Memphis is too far to save a few bucks…..I love the deals though…

      • Koolkoor

        Use the riteaid website for shopping

    • amy

      I just think it's great that you are encouraging the donations. It's hard for me to read some sites about stockpiling (hoarding) all the free stuff people get. It's much more fun to share. And it's a great lesson to teach the kids.

    • Bluegrassfundraising

      I can't find the Target printable coupons on their site for the Glade or floss. Am I missing something?
