You can give your time! Many organizations, schools, families and individuals give their time to fill backpacks for children in of meals on the weekends. Volunteers fulfill a very important step in the process of delivering food and supplies to where they are needed most.
Organize a Food Drive
Because Filling in the Blanks only has $6.00 per weekend per child, food drives are a very important aspect of our charity. The more food we have available, the more food that can go into our weekend bags. Anyone can organize a food drive; it's that simple.
Decide what non-perishable items you will be collecting.
Examples: individual size cereal boxes, individual microwaveable meals/mac and cheese, cans of veggies, soup, or fruit cups.
Set up a date and place for collecting food.
Publicize your even thru emails, social media, fliers and the local paper.
Filling in the Blanks will publicize your event as well.
Set your fundraising goal and let the world know why you're passionate about fighting childhood hunger.
Create a Web page for your own personal fundraising campaign.
E-mail you page to your friends, family, classmates and co-workers and ask them to donate.
Publicize your personal campaign through social network sites.
