(Redlands, CA) Habitat for Humanity San Bernardino Area has partnered with Second Harvest for its holiday Food Drive. The people who want to help the less fortunate are asked to drop off non-perishable canned and boxed food items the Habitat for Humanity ReStore located at 25948 Business Center Drive in Redlands from now till December 28.
People that bring any three non-perishable canned or boxed items the ReStore will receive a coupon that can be used instantly or on a future purchase,” said Habitat for Humanity ReStore Manager Jon Biggs.
For extra savings Biggs offers customers that bring the items listed below an extra five percent off their purchase in addition to the coupon.
“This week’s coupon is worth 20 percent off your total purchase,” said Biggs. “Bring in specific items on the following days and receive 25 percent off of your total purchase – excluding area rugs.”
“On Tuna Tuesday bring tuna, for Wheaties Wednesday bring full size boxes of cereal, on Throwback Thursday bring macaroni and cheese and/or peanut butter and jelly, on Funky Friday bring spam and sardines, and on spaghetti Saturday bring spaghetti sauce and pasta,” said Biggs.
