We’ll donate 5% of your order to your favorite non-profit

As you know, one of the tenets of DollarDays is to give back to the community. We’ve created our 5% Give Back Program just for that reason. It’s very simple. After you have made your purchase at DollarDays.com, you will see an order confirmation screen that will ask you if you would like 5% of your order donated to your favorite non-profit. DollarDays pays that 5%—you don’t pay a dime. If you choose to make a donation, we will send and email to the non-profit, letting them know they have money to spend on anything they’d like! Isn’t that great? You can learn more about it here. It’s all about giving back! Pass it on!

DollarDays employee volunteers at Phoenix Rescue Mission

 

by Chris Steagall, DollarDays’ Senior Account Representative

I wanted to share the wonderful experience Lynda (my wife) and I had this past weekend. We both volunteered at the Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Back to School event. Around 600 families were provided filled backpacks, school uniforms, a free Thrift store with clothes, toys and bedding. Plus a nice box of food and a case of water.

Lynda and I were responsible for the last stop. Our first hour, while the first families were in a prayer service, Lynda and I packed 300+ boxes of food and staged all the cases of water. For the next 3 hours we passed out 600+ boxes of food!

I invite everyone to volunteer next year, it was a wonderful heartwarming experience. Here are a few pictures:

Merry Christmas from Waukegan and Mrs. Ahern’s students!

Here’s a lovely letter that made our day from a teacher who won in one of DollarDays’ monthly Facebook contests, and has kept in touch with us ever since. In fact, Virginia Heraz, our Director of Marketing, visited the classroom in Waukegan, IL last fall! Really, this is what life is all about—caring about others and giving without expectation. Teacher Julie Ahern and her second grade students have a huge place in our hearts. Thank you to them for caring and remembering us during the holidays. From all of us at DollarDays, we wish you a happy holiday season! You make us smile!

Here’s the letter:

Dear Virginia,

holding blanketsMy students asked if I would send Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday greetings to you! They also wanted to say thank you again for the blankets that you gave them. Last week they completed a series of writing challenges and then very proudly received the blankets to take home for the holidays. I am including a picture of your friend (seen at the restaurant!) Ezekiel holding two of the ever so soft blankets. Miss Savannah also asked if I would take her picture (I thought I would include it as there is a child sprinting down the hallway, lol).

Thank you again for your incredible kindnesses towards my students -you are a Christmas angel to them. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and happy New Year. It is sub-zero weather here in Waukegan so I hope you are enjoying much warmer weather!

Mrs. Julie Ahern
2nd Grade Teacher
Andrew Cooke Magnet Elementary School

Helping others is what we’re all about

Pinelake IndiaIf you know anything at all about DollarDays, then you know we always like to help others in need.  And we love to hear about others doing the same and thought we’d share a story of a customer who is devoted to helping others.

Pinelake Church, with several locations in Mississippi, is helping people in Punjab, India who are in need.  Teams from Pinelake Church travel to India and offer a Compassion Kit that is a good-sized box filled with practical living items like soap, toothpaste, t-shirts and other basic items.  The Kit is a gift that also shares the story of Jesus and gives the opportunity for a person to begin their own story of knowing Jesus.

DollarDays feels fortunate to be Pinelake Church’s wholesale connection for the contents of the Compassion Kits. It’s projects like these that make us feel like we are making a difference too.

Keep up the good work, Pinelake Church!

Making the Most of your Holiday Charity and Donations

charity-giftby Jackie Eldridge

Most non-profit organizations, such as churches, charities, shelters and schools, have special missions, outreach or service projects planned for the Christmas holidays to help those in need. We find that at his time of year, non-profits like yours are preparing to help provide food, clothing and holiday presents to children and families, as well as helping the homeless. And we also find they need to stretch every penny.

We provide needed items in bulk to hundreds of organizations and one of the most popular and practical items we see to help the homeless at Christmastime is the purchase of bulk wholesale plastic shoe boxes and filling them with dozens of bulk wholesale health and beauty supplies such as tooth paste and brushes, soap, first aid, shampoo, wet wipes, aspirin, deodorant, combs, toenail clippers, razors, snacks and other items to help maintain hygiene and health. Buying the shoeboxes and the health and hygiene items at wholesale makes it possible for organizations to stretch their dollars and help more people. One of the things that our non-profit organizations enjoy about the clear plastic shoe boxes filled with health and hygiene items is that their organization has to create an event to bring their members together to pack the boxes. This provides a deep sense of service and camaraderie. Once packed, distribution begins and that true spirit of the season lasts and lasts. They are making a true difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

The homeless in particular have many needs to make it through the cold winter. Some organizations buy wholesale sleeping bags, fleece blankets, coats, hats, gloves, shoes and boots, as well as socks to distribute to shelters and to those living on the streets. In fact, to emphasize the importance of socks, the Boston Health Care for the Homeless program believes “clean, white socks are a staple of homeless health care and make a real difference in the lives of their patients.” Needless to say, we sell tens of thousands of pairs of socks each holiday season.

Then we have to think about the children. While there are many organizations, such as Toys for Tots, that provide toys for kids, local schools, churches and organizations make the children a priority by having toy drives. One of the best values for buying toys is buying in bulk at DollarDays.com. Instead of buying one toy, you can purchase a lot of 12 and often the cost for 12 toys wholesale is what you might pay for one toy from a retail store.  We have hundreds of small community organizations buy toys in bulk, as well as some of the larger organizations such as Salvation Army.

If your organization would like additional help with donations, DollarDays has a WishList program where we give you a WishList page, with your name and logo on it, and you can select the items from DollarDays you’d like people to donate to your organization. Donors visit your WishList, select the items you need and we ship them to you.  The program is free and it includes a toolkit to help your organization promote it in your community.
