Host a Helpings Drive

It’s fun!

Successful organizers can turn drives into competitions with other departments or offices with the winning team receiving a casual Friday or pizza party. Who doesn’t like pizza?

It’s easy!

The drive can be conducted at your work, school, place of worship or even at home. We can provide you with flyers you can post or email to notify co-workers, classmates, colleagues, friends or family. You just provide a place for participants to drop off their donations (most people just set up a box in a common area).

It makes a difference!

By organizing a drive for children’s books, toys or coats for the homeless, for example, you not only help our families with critically needed items that help keep them healthy and safe, but you can make a tremendous difference for a family this year.

Help Without the Hassle – Donate Cash Instead!
