We do an annual event at work (since 1998 I am told) of hosting a food barrel for donations to our county's community food bank. I already went to Target this week and bought a case of canned veggies with coupons for 40 cents per can and chicken stock for 46 cents per can. I usually buy pasta and cereal as well (waiting for a good sale).
I am going through my stashes of stuff at the house for a Toys for Tots donation that our office supplier hosts every year. It's great, their drivers pick up our donations when they deliver an order. So easy. Last year I bought a big bag full of fleece blankets from a Kmart deal. This year I am thinking about giving up my LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon backpack (NWT). But I love it! Millennium Falcon! I must have other stuff I could give. Not my Star Wars Advent Calendars either, though.

I have tried to go to Rutgers Big Chill every year since I started college back in 2002.. I think I have missed 3 or 4 times so far. I like it because entry fee is not cash.. it's an unopened toy for a kid.. and that way they toy goes directly to a needy kid during Christmas. There is one man who comes every single year and he gives a standard full sized bicycle every single year. 10,000 toys collected last year.
