Left the house today at 7:45 AM to head three hours one way to the other side of the state to pick up supplies for future outreach projects. By the time we loaded up the van, made the trek back, unloaded the van and then got home, it was almost 8:00 PM. And I am one tired puppy.
But what did I get?
- 174 cases (12 packs) of diet Cherry 7-Up. Retail Value: $1,396.26; My Cost: FREE (thank you Agape Distribution, Operation Blessing and Pat Robertson!)
- 2000 packages of Lamisil Advanced Antifugal Gel. Retail Value: $39,980.00. My Cost: FREE (thank you Agape Distribution, Operation Blessing and Pat Robertson!)
- 150 Coleman made jackets. Approximate Retail Value: $15,000.00? MY Cost: $487.50 (thank you Agape Distribution!).
My only other costs were the $91 dollars I spent on fuel to ge there and back.
I’m a tired guy tonight…but I’ve got some fun stuff to give away. Jackets for area students in the Fall, Lamisil for the Athletic departments in all the area high schools and colleges and possibly for the upcoming Gus Macker tourney, plus pop to hand out by the case just for fun. The hope? For conversations to stir…"why would you give this away to me…?"
Ah…well let me tell you about a person who changed my life…!
