The New Year Is Off To A Good Start
At least once a week, I organize the biscuit room, but over the holiday rush, I let it slide a bit. We had a few bags and a box of donations, some gorgeous fabric, thread, and lace donated to us by a sweet lady back in November, and the holiday bags and containers were still out. I spent almost 2 hours this afternoon getting things organized, putting the holiday stuff away and...restocking our Bodacious Biscuit Love Bin.
If you're not familiar with the creation of the Bodacious Biscuit Love Bin, you can catch up here and here.
We created the Bodacious Biscuit Love Bin so we could assist local pet parents who have fallen on hard times. Our goal is to keep this bin stocked with food, treats, and other supplies so when a situation is brought to our attention, we can assist. We've already stocked and emptied the bin several times after distributing much needed items during the fall and holiday season.
Originally, we were going to put the bin on our front porch so pet parents in need could help themselves to whatever was inside. However, we ran into a few issues. The biggest was the weather. It was either too cold, too hot, too much sun, rain, snow, etc. We made the decision to keep the bin inside of the biscuit room and post photos of the contents.
I restocked the bin today with food, treats, toys, apparel, collars, biscuit love (not shown as we bake this fresh when needed), and a few other miscellaneous items.
We also shipped a couple of biscuit love care packages today this afternoon. One of the care packages included a gift card to Walmart so the recipient could purchase food for their pup. Next week, we'll be shipping a couple more care packages.
The new year is definitely off to a good start!
