Holiday Food Drive and Raffle Hot
My community is currently hosting a food drive for our local food bank. The leasing office did a little research to see which organizations were in need of donations for the holidays. It was easy to get the information for our local food bank and setup minor details such as picking up the food barrel & arranging for a pick-up at the end of the drive. We made flyers to pass out to each home and post throughout the community. The food bank also had tools online such as what items they needed and posters we could print out for free. To 'up the ante' a bit we also organized a raffle to go with it. For each item that is brought into the office the resident's name will go into the raffle one time. Winners will be chosen at random and receive a $25 gift card (or any prize that works for your community). The food drive raffle will be going on throughout the month of November. We have more than a week yet and an almost full barrel!
We are doing this with our residents from mid-November and wrapping it up mid-december and have gotten a GREAT response from them. We got four giant boxes from our local food bank for residents to drop their food into at our clubhouse and got Whole Foods to donate paper bags that we put on our resident's door along with a list of much needed items. We are also doing a raffle. We can't wait to post on facebook with our results!
