New Year Resolutions
Extreme Couponing Leads to Giving Back
Jennifer Davis made a new year’s resolution last year.
She decided to learn extreme couponing. There are loads of websites
dedicated to this practice, and even a reality television show. Jennifer
has taken this resolution and run with it over the past year. Her shelves
are stocked with toiletries, from shampoo to razors to shaving cream. But
she doesn’t just use these toiletries for herself – she is committed to giving
the various items to non-profits, one of them being St. Vincent de Paul
Center’s homeless outreach program.
“The commitment was $150 to spend
during the month of December, and with that I got around $1,700 worth of
toiletries, medicine and toys,” said Jennifer. She is demonstrating an easy and
inexpensive way for young people to give back.
We are grateful for Jennifer’s generosity and all that she
does for our clients. Thanks to her donations, we are able to include
toiletries in our food pantry bags as well as hand them out to clients when
they come in for visits. What will your New Year’s resolution be?
