Looking for B&M deals (or online deals w/fast delivery) that will help maximize dollars when looking to purchase the following items. I know SDers have the pulse of finding great deals. While I encourage you to donate, (amazon wishlist here: ), I am just looking for killer deals for the below items that I can go buy in person and deliver. I can buy blankets for $10 online, but if someone knows where to find them for $5 in store, we can can get twice as many, right?

There is a huge $10 million dollar fund that won't be distributed for months. In the mean time, local organizations are collecting donations for food and supplies for some of those wounded and their families, many of which are stationed in local hospitals. They may be spending much of their time in the hospital or out of hotel rooms. These donations are intended to defray costs of day to day items, and other needed supplies.

The items needed list changes every few days and donations in/out are rapid. Their current want list is:

Red Bull
Beef Jerky
Monster Energy Drinks
Diet Coke
Capri Suns
New Unused Blankets
New Unused Large or XL Sweat Shirts
New Unused Pillows
New Magazines , Crossword Puzzles, Small handheld Electronic Games for Kids
Phone Cards
Gift Cards (our goal is to not have any victim's families pay for anything while here )
Halloween Candy for Gift Jack O Lanterns for families

This is the list put out by Branden Powers of Evel Pie/Golden Tiki. He and his crew have done an amazing job of putting the word out and getting the donated items in the hands of those who need it.

Take a look at the great work they're doing:
