Special Event or Campaign
If you would like to do something more in-depth or creative than a fund or food drive, The Food Bank would love to help plan a special event unique to you. The possibilities are nearly endless. Our creative staff will work with you to help achieve your dream event. For more information on special drives contact Kyle Hughley by emailing email@example.com.
Organize a “Bringing Hope” Fund Drive
Whether you are paying to wear jeans at work or just setting a team goal, fund drives are simple and fun to take part in. A prize for the person/team that raises the most is always a great idea as well! Cash, check and credit cards (online) are accepted. If you have questions on getting started contact Michael Yetman at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 573-474-1020.
Host a “Sharing Food” Drive
The Food Bank always accepts non-perishable food items for distribution. A list of most-needed items and buddy-pack-specific items are available by clicking below. Remember to set a goal and aim high! We have learned the best food drives last about two weeks or less and usually have an element of competition. Be sure to promote your event as well. The Food Bank provides food-drive posters you can print by clicking here.
