Zerorez SoCal Gives Back To The Community With Minor Miracles! #ZerorezSocal #MinorMiracles

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post by me, for Zerorez SoCal.  All opinions are my own.

zerorez-socal-minor-miraclesI’ve posted about ZerorezSoCal a couple of times here on the blog over the last month.  If you are in SoCal you might remember reading about my Zerorez SoCal carpet cleaning experience, and you may have already taken advantage of the Zerorez Discount I have available.  What I haven’t mentioned, and what I personally think is just AWESOME… is that ZerorezSocal has a Minor Miracles program!

Minor Miracles is a program that Zerorez SoCal developed to help deserving organizations or individuals.  They regularly choose individuals or organizations in need, and clean their homes or offices for FREE!  Helping provide a clean and healthy environment is a great way to give back to the community.  Plus, it improves the lives of those touched with the “minor miracles”.

Do you know someone in SoCal that’s deserving of a Minor Miracle?  Nominations for  “minor miracle” recipients are informal, but are greatly appreciated! Recipients are generally non-profits or individuals with specific needs or challenges.

Some of the previous “minor miracle” recipients include:

  • Working Wardrobes offices and showroom – helping the homeless train, dress, and apply for employment.
  • U.S. Veterans offices – Provide apartments for veterans who are homeless and seeking a new start
  • Women’s Shelter of Huntington Beach
  • Mother’s Day Program (10 deserving moms provided cleaning service)
  • Family of five teenagers who lost their father to a heart attack
  • Whitehouse Restaurant of Anaheim – over 500,000 free meals provided to homeless “motel” kids

Here’s a quick video of one of the Mother’s Day Minor Miracles winners… 

If you’d like to nominate a non-profit, church, or community space in Southern California for Minor Miracles and a FREE Cleaning by Zerorez SoCal, you can do it HERE.

Couponing For A Cause – My OC Rescue Mission Donation!

oc-rescue-mission-donation2I heard from the OC Rescue Mission last week that they were in need of Shampoo and Soap.  I’m not personally in the position where I can help much through CASH donations, but I can certainly donate ITEMS, thanks to COUPONS.  I coupon to save my family money so we can splurge on other items (although infrequent).  However, I also coupon to help others, and am happy to do so as much as I can.  (You might remember back in October several OC Deal Mama readers came together and donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank – almost 900lbs of food and items!)

Today, the OC Rescue Mission is getting 37 Shampoos, 24 Body Washes, 4 Lotions, 3 Toothpastes and 3 Multipack Bar Soaps from my stockpile.  I actually just purchased the 19 TRESemme last week, specifically for them.  They were included in the Cash Card Deal at CVS – 3/$10.00 and each bottle had a $1.75/1 peelie coupon on them, making them roughly $0.47 each.  I paid with ECBs plus I’m getting Beauty Bucks back on these, so essentially I pretty much got them FREE!

I called the OC Rescue Mission this morning and asked them what other items they need right now.  If you are local, and are looking to help, they are seriously in NEED of WARM CLOTHES, coats, jackets, blankets and the like.  They also told me that they are always needing diapers and wipes.  Apparently they have several children… just heartbreaking.

Donations can be made Monday – Saturday between 8:00am – 5:00pm at their Tustin facility.  Tax receipts are available.

OC Rescue Mission
1 Hope Drive
Tustin, CA 92782
(800) 663-3074

All donations are appreciated, regardless of the size!  THANK YOU for giving back to the community!

Also, after class playgroups and Mom’s night out will be here soon!
