Want to Make A Bigger Impact?

ORGANIZE your own FOOD DRIVE

1) DECIDE WHO YOU WANT TO ASK TO PARTICIPATE

Will it be your church, your school class, your coworkers or your Scouting troop?

2) DECIDE HOW YOU WANT TO RAISE THE FOOD

Canvas a neighborhood? Ask individuals to pick up extra cans of food when they shop?

3) SET A START DATE AND END DATE FOR YOUR FOOD DRIVE

4) SET A GOAL

How many pounds of food do you want to challenge your group to raise? Set the bar high, but make sure it's realistic.

5) MAKE IT A COMPETITION!

A healthy challenge between offices, classrooms, age groups, etc. usually motivates people to do more.

6) LET PEOPLE KNOW!

Send emails, use Facebook, make phone calls or post flyers.

7) MAKE THE MOST DIFFERENCE

Be sure to request the suggested food items listed below or in the flyer.

8) KNOW THAT YOU ARE HELPING TO RESTORE LIVES!

The food you donate combined with safe shelter, Christian counseling, and our whole person model of restoration, help individuals and families find a path towards healing!
