7/19/2014 – Purchased a 600 ct. (approx.) package of loom rubber bands in the 6 Salvation bracelet colors (Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, White, Black) at Michaels for $2.00 per package. Using 24 bands per bracelet, the cost of each worked out to be $0.09 and made 174 bracelets!! These will be added to our collection of items that will be packed into shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!
