Pantry Tithe March 22, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — sandra @ 10:28 pm

Each week I take a “tithe” from my pantry/stockpile and donate it to local charities.  I take five food items and donate to our food pantry at church.  I also take five household/personal items and donate them to a local home for women and children who have suffered from domestic violence.  Here is my tithe from this past week.

For the shelter:

1 toothbrush

1 eye pencil

1 Dayquil

1 Nyquil

1 dental floss

For the food pantry:

2 bags rice

1 pouch tuna

1 box Ritz Bits

1 bottle mustard

Did you make a “pantry tithe” this week?
