Kendra Myers of Kendra's Kreations held her final event of the year on Nov. 29 in her home in Rendon. The third annual Jamboree & Canned Food Drive saw 15 people and tons of donations, which will be given to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.

"There was plenty of goodies to sample and purchase," Myers said. "Every year I tell them to bring five items to donate and I'll give them 5 percent off of regular priced items - I then turn around and give that 5 percent to the food bank - along with all of the donations."

This year, there were 89 items donated, including boxed goods, cans and jars of food, tooth brushes, and more, plus 56 packages of gum, drink mixes, and granola bars. There were also $10 in cash donations that will go to the food bank in addition to the 5 percent from the business itself.

"The Jamboree is my final event of the year - it is great way for us to say thank you to all of our customers by offering my clearance table of steals and deals," Myers said. "This year I offered 50 percent off select items - there were over 40 items on the table and they all sold out. Plus, it gives the customers a chance to try a large assortment of KK's items."

Each year, Kendra's Kreations asks for donations of the following items: 

Canned meats (tuna, salmon, chicken, ham, stew, chili, etc.), Canned Fruit, Canned Vegetables, Dried Beans, Dried Pasta, Rice, Canned Soup, Dehydrated Soups, Canned Juice, Peanut Butter, Boxed Meals, Cereals, Snacks, Baby Formula, Toiletries (Shampoo, bath soap, toothbrushes, deodorant, etc.), Laundry Soap, Paper Goods, Cleaning Products, Feminine Products, Diapers.

Products sold at the event include: Christmas ornaments, jewelry, jam, jellies, pickles, and more. Light drinks and snacks, as well as complimentary gift wrapping, are also provided as a courtesy.

Kendra's Kreations returns May 2015 when the local farmers market reopens. See the gallery at the top of the article for the offerings, and visit Kendra's Kreations on Facebook.
