Ok, so maybe we don't need coolers quite this big, but we do need some. As I mentioned a few posts ago, Saturday, June 18th we're doing some community give-a-way stuff. We're having a yard sale (that really isn't a sale) where everything will be free--if ya need it, take it. At the yard sale and at a few other places around town we're gonna be handing out some ice cold bottles of water just to say, "Hey--you look thirsty, want some water?" Who knows, maybe when they cock their head to the side and ask (with a puzzled facial expression and tone of voice) why it's free, we'll get to tell them about Jesus, but if not, at least they got a drink (and maybe something to wonder about).

Anyway, in order to hand out ice cold bottles of water instead of luke warm bottles of water, we're gonna need some coolers--and a lot of 'em. We'll be handing out somewhere between 500-750 bottles of water, so you do the math. If anyone has some coolers, big old aluminum tubs, or some other container that we can ice down massive amounts of water in--and you'd be willing to donate them or at least let us use them next Saturday, just leave a comment with your contact info or email me.

Oh yeah, if you have stuff you'd like to donate to the give-a-way yard sale thingy, feel free to contact me as well. If you'd like, we'll come pick it up for ya. And did I mention that yes, anything donated to this community freebie thing will be tax deductible...so that's a definite plus.

cool deal!!!!!!!!! My huband and I ran one of these a few years ago. We called it a FreeShop. And it was awesome. We gave a coke and cookies to everyone who came through. We stocked the fridges at our facility...and then shuffled them to a couple of coolers. It was easier that way...but you might not have that option. But it worked for us. Good luck to you!!!!!!!
