Costume Drive for Child Advocates – Whole Foods – 10/5/11 to 10/15/11


Wondering what to do with last year’s costume? How about donate it to local Houston kids in need? Whole Foods is collecting costumes at all store locations from 10/5-10/15. Bring in your clean, gently used or brand new costume to be donated to Child Advocates, Inc.



I do love Chick-Fil-A.   I did not grow up with one, so I’ve been making up for that for the last 10 years.   I love the food, I love the clean play area, I love that they come to your table and ask to refill your drink and I love that when you say “thank you”, they say “my pleasure”.   I also like that with the kid’s meal, you can trade the toy in for a free ice cream cone. My kids love the ice cream, I love that I don’t have more clutter around my house.

Speaking of clutter clean up, the Chick-Fil-A at 59 and Kirby is still taking school supply donations. The kids and I loaded up our free Office Depot backpack with all the penny supplies we’ve been collecting from the office supply stores, and took it over. My son was very pleased to be helping out other kids.


As a bonus, the kids got to play at the play place while I sipped on my iced tea (free with the coupon in the holiday calendar purchases last year).  And of course, the employees were very polite and refilled my drink, at my table, 12 times while saying “my pleasure”.

Extra School Supplies?

Office Max and Office Depot have been having 1 cent deals the last several weeks and I’ve found myself with a bunch of crayons, rulers and notebooks. Do you also have some extra school supplies you would like to donate?  The Chick-Fil-A at 59 and Kirby is hosting Operation School Supplies for the DePelchin Center.

I think clearing out some clutter and eating Chick-Fil-A sounds like a great idea. You might also want to check out their kid’s event schedule HERE.
