BOGO Deals Help Local Students

Each week the Citrus County Chronicle, Tampa Bay Times and other news publications include coupons to local stores. These coupons help consumers determine their grocery list and ultimately their meals for the upcoming week. It just makes sense to stock up when an item is on sale.

BOGO (Buy-One-Get-One Free)

It is hard to resist a BOGO deal. Whether you prefer to think of it as half price for both or one for free, its a fabulous opportunity to save money. It is also an opportunity to help others. Talk about a win-win!

Each week a volunteer searches through the coupons/inserts seeking out the best deals on items the program sends home with students from local stores. All of these items are non-perishable, individually wrapped and mostly, ready-to-eat. Once a week when all of the deals are discovered a list is published on Blessings Facebook page. Hoping that supporters will contribute their free (or half priced!) items to be sent home with children in need, each donation allows the organization to save valuable dollars.

If you happen to catch a sale, the program is always in need of:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Tuna / Vienna Sausages / Beans & Franks
  • Chef Boyardee
  • Bottled Water

Donations of food can be made at the Blessings office located at 2804 W Marc Knighton Ct, Lecanto, FL or at any of the donation receptacles around the county. You can find these locations by clicking HERE.

Once a week when all of the deals are discovered we publish a list on Blessings Facebook page.
