Last week, the kids and I headed out to Walmart to buy supplies for our Energizer Champions for Kids care kit. On the way into the store, I tried to explain to E what we were doing. I told him we needed to buy some flashlights, batteries, water, and hats and gloves for a family in our neighborhood. Once I told him that the items would be going to kids like him, he was excited to help out.

My helpers were ready and we set out with a checklist in mind: bottled water, batteries, flashlight, gloves, and hats.

I guess I never realized how important batteries are. They must be because they are placed every where around the store! Every where I turned, there was a battery display. This is helpful because I tend to forget to pick up things that I need and it’s convenient to grab the size that you need when you make an unexpected purchase that requires batteries.

After we loaded up our cart with our supplies and some goodies for us, it was time to head home and pack our kit up.

But first, good shopping helpers have to be rewarded with a treat: a pretzel! {You can view more of our shopping trip over on Google+}.

When we got home, E was eager to see all of the supplies we purchased. We laid them out on the table to make sure that we had enough. I was shocked at how much we fit in our handy basket.

Out of all the items we purchased, the Energizer flashlight is my favorite. It has a checklist printed right on for things that should be included in your emergency kit: water, 3 day supply of food, first aid kit, sanitation items, clothing and bedding, family documents, spare batteries, portable radio, and flashlights. Another bonus? It takes any kind of batteries you might have on hand!

Once our kit was ready to go, we headed to our local food pantry. I knew they would know a family in need in the community that the kit would benefit. They were more than grateful for my donation. They thought it was the greatest idea! They wish more people thought of things like this. Yes, food is important, but being safe and warm {especially in the winter months} is important too. While I was there, I even signed up to work a few shifts.

There’s no better feeling than giving back to your community!
