I'm so sorry, but we already have someone slotted in for that time frame.

checking out 3/2, who should I leave stuff for?

Hello! We are checking in to BC tomorrow, checking out 3/2. If you let me know who to leave nonperishables for, I would be happy to do so.
Take care, Jennifer

If you check the board while on vacation, then you just need to contact the person who would be checking in the closest after you (snowangel72 I think)...send them a PM for their name.
Let me know if you are going to do this, so I don't slot anyone in between your stays. Does that make sense?
Thanks, and have a wonderful vacation!

Honestly couldn't we get a second strand of pay it forward going if there are more going? I go 9th thru 13th and could leave stuff at the front desk for you.
So maybe at the top of the thread call yourself PIF2!

How Bout we make a second thread.

I would be fine with adding a second group onto this thread, it does seem that there are enough people interested. I can just add it on to the original first page, next to the first one. What ya think?

Ok, I will work on that today..I think there were at least 3 people who could be slotted in to a second group...do you want to go back to that second thread you started and delete it, then we will all be in one place.

Now there's a good idea! Has anyone actually checked with BC to see if this is doable? BC isn't Disney!

One of the participants was part of a group last year that did this at Bonnet Creek. The front desk didn't have a problem at all with leaving a box for a family. There is a storage room off the main lobby that they will keep the box in.

I think regardless of who or what you leave the nonperishables for it is great to not be wasting items unnecessarily. I like the idea of helping out fellow DISers with items they might need, or coupons, useful tips etc....

I was part of the group from last year. Front desk was great about storing a bag or box for a family, but one thing I should mention is the size or capacity of the bag. The family before us used a small box with the lid taped (well marked) and we used a material type grocery bag and tied the handles together with a ribbon ( brought the label and ribbon from home). We used the ribbon to attach the label. I don't think they would welcome multiple or large parcels, but we only had a few things (clorox wipes, sunscreen, a can of soup, puffs tissues, spray lysol. Since we knew there were 2 children we included the holiday Disney Hats for them as a treat.We did have a few other things, but we used the WBC Food Bank donation box for those. Hope this helps.
