Get the word out
Create public awareness by placing promotional items (like posters, flyers, information brochures, etc.) in areas such as lunchrooms or elevators to build awareness of your food drive. Internal newsletters, public address systems, or mass e-mails can build anticipation. Use social media such as Twitter or Facebook.
Go where the action is
Provide convenient drop-off points where people can leave their donations.
Align your event with a pre-existing event, holiday, or observance. Reduced admissions or clever themes will help your drive become a success. But, don’t let us tell you how to throw a fundraiser – if you want to explore alternatives, we’re wide open for discussion.
Everyone likes a challenge
Make it interesting – try to create a friendly competition with co-workers or different classes. Challenge them to meet your contribution because everyone enjoys friendly competition for a good cause.
