Host a Collection Drive
Collection drives are an easy way to get involved in supporting your community. Our partner agencies have needs that you can help to fulfill when you host a drive. Your collection drive can be as big as city-wide, or as small as your office, depending on your available time and effort. You organize and hold the collection, and we will coordinate pick-up and distribute your items where they are needed most.
Here's how it works:
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Spread the Love collect peanut butter
Happy, Healthy Babies collection for diapers and formula (or Host a Baby Shower in your office!)
Bare Essentials Campaign for new socks and underwear, bras, and feminine hygiene products
Share a Smile collection for toothbrushes, mouthwash, and toothpaste
Spring Cleaning collection for garbage bags, paper towels, multi-purpose cleaning spray, vinyl gloves, dish soap, and sponges
Outdoor Play collection for basketballs, footballs, playground balls, soccer balls, hula hoops, and jump ropes
Page it Forward with a collection of new and gently-used books for children
It's all Fun and Games when you collect board and card games for after-school programs
Squeaky Clean- collect hygiene items such as brushes, combs, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant, disposable razors and shaving cream
Let us know if you have other ideas. We'd love to work with you to determine how your creative collection ideas could work in the community.
