Every holiday season, I try to give to food banks and gift collection efforts. This year, things got so tight that I almost missed out on my chance. It made me feel terrible. Growing up, I’ve been on the receiving end, so I know firsthand how much of a difference donations can make.
This year, it seems a lot of us are going through hard times. Through these struggles, things eventually get better especially with a little help from family and friends. It truly takes a village sometimes…
Thanks to Walmart, I was able to shop for a family in need. This is one of my absolute favorites perks to being a Walmart Mom. They truly came through. The family that I shopped for requested craft kits and items for the kids. I was able to find lots of fun things for the littles to keep themselves busy and inspired, plus some warm sweaters, PJ’s and socks for a little over $100. I’m so happy to be able to make their season a little brighter.

In partnership with The Salvation Army, Walmart stores are collecting donations for their Fill the Truck Toy Drive to help children in need. Through December 15th, shoppers will have the opportunity to drop off new, unwrapped toys and coats in the truck boxes or bins that will be given to families before Christmas.
Whether you chose to partake in Fill The Truck or donate directly to a family, consider the gift of giving this holiday season.
As a participant in the Walmart Moms Program, I’ve received a gift card (to shop for this family) and compensation for my time and efforts in creating this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
