#SoupsOn14

You probably know someone who is going through a difficult time financially right now. It could be due to the economy, job loss or change, health reasons, divorce, or any of a variety of reasons. It’s good to know that there are organizations that can help in your time of hardship. Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry is an organization that helps residents in the Naperville area and DuPage county with food assistance. Households outside of that area may receive a one-time emergency distribution. I took a tour of Loaves & Fishes and was able to see how they run the pantry. They have it laid out like a grocery store, so when people come in, they can have that experience, plus they offer some personal care items also, which is so helpful to many households. I know they can use any help with donations or funds to stock their pantry so they can help as many families as possible. When you attend Soup’s On!, a portion will go back to them.

About Soup’s On!:

On Sunday, October 19th, the Rotary Club of Naperville will be hosting “Soup’s On!”, a fun, family focused fundraiser featuring great entertainment and plenty of delicious food. Benefitting Hesed House, DuPage PADS, Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and the Rotary Club of Naperville Charities, the concept of “Soup’s On” ties in with the theme of a “soup kitchen” and feeding people in need – a goal of these three not-for-profit organizations.

Over 30 local restaurants will be serving soups, stews, chili, chowders, and BBQ as well as artisan cheeses, specialty bread and yummy deserts. There will also be a specific children’s menu available. Guest will be treated to live entertainment by students from Districts 203 and 204. In addition, “Soup’s On!” will also have a children’s activity area sponsored by the DuPage Children’s Museum, and a silent auction.

How to purchase tickets:

The event is from 11:30am – 3:30pm at Naperville Central High School located at 440 Aurora Avenue in Naperville. Tickets are $45 for adults, $35 for seniors 65+ and military personnel, $10 for children 6-12, and children under 5 are free. You can purchase tickets by going to Soups On Rotary and selecting “Purchase Tickets” from the left side of the home page.

DonorsChoose.org & Savings.com – Matching Donation Program Through 2/24

As a Savings.com DealPro, we are so excited to be able to share with you this very special campaign they have going on with DonorsChoose.org! If you have not heard of DonorsChoose.org before, it is an innovative online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. We hear in the news all the time about how teachers sometimes have to dig into their own pockets to get supplies for their class projects, all to help give their students a better education. This is a way to be able to give back to your community and support a deserving project!

One thing we love about being a DealPro is that Savings.com is also passionate about thinking about others and giving back. Savings.com is helping make your money go further when you give back to a school in need in the new year! Use the gift code “SAVINGS” through tomorrow, February 24th, on Donors Choose and they will match your donation up to $100.

More about DonorsChoose.org: Approximately 40 percent of schools across the U.S. use DonorsChoose.org, an innovative online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers across the country post specific requests to support their classroom projects, ranging from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class. Visitors to the website decide which project they would like to support and DonorsChoose.org delivers materials to the school once a project reaches its funding goal.

Here are some suggested tips on how to navigate through the site to find the perfect project:
- Get local – Use their location filter to find projects in your state or hometown.
- Get inspired – What are you passionate about? The environment? Water color painting? A book you’re reading? Narrow projects by subject area, or search for what you care about in the keyword box.
- Get choosy – Sort your search results by cost, poverty level, or popularity…whatever matters most to you.

If you are a teacher, we encourage you to submit your projects to DonorsChoose.org so that others can contribute funds to them.  After submitting your project, share it with your students’ parents, friends, family, and the community.  If you are a parent, we encourage you to see if your children’s teachers have submitted a project and contribute to it. If you are a community member, we encourage you to step forward and help students get the best education they can with your help!

Let us know if you have a project on DonorsChoose.org that could use some help in contributions by adding the link below.  We’d love to spread the word to our readers.  Also let us know if you contributed to something on DonorsChoose.org so that we can give a shout out for that as well.

How are we contributing to DonorsChoose.org is by donating to a project in our school district. We are also passing the information on to the teachers so they can submit their projects.

Find a project on DonorsChoose.org today!

How To Give Freely 2/10


Welcome to Give Freely!

One in five Americans deals daily with the issue of not having enough to eat. Many of those are children. As couponers, we have the unique opportunity to buy items at extremely reduced prices (or even free) to feed our families.

The goal is Give Freely is to present you each week with freebies or near freebies from your local grocery stores. Because these items are so inexpensive we are hoping that you will spend the extra few cents to pick up a spare item to donate to your community center, church, local food bank or shelter.

If you are a blogger who does deals for a supermarket not on this list and would be interested in participating, please send Laura an e-mail!

Please take this opportunity to help stop hunger in this country!
