Confirm approval from the President, C.E.O. or Board President to participate in the Food Drive. Designate a contact person at your organization. Plan for frequent communication between coordinator and Hawaii Foodbank.
Set Specific Dates & Goals
Determine the time frame and the location for your collections that would be most effective in maximizing participation. Establish an overall goal for the company and/or individual goal for the employees. For example, 10 pounds per person or $10 per person is a great way to start!
Generate Enthusiasm & Participation
Advertise information throughout your community and/or organization to raise involvement early in the process, by using flyers, email notices, newsletters or the top five most wanted flyer. Talk it up! The grapevine is an excellent way to get the word out. Be creative! Friendly competition among departments or other store locations.
Arrange Collection & Drop-off
Arrange an area that is visible in your office for your Food & Fund Drive. You may decorate boxes as collection bins with colorful flyers or wrapping paper. By coordinating a delivery of your donations to Hawaii Foodbank, you are helping us save on transportation and labor costs. However, if you have more boxes than you can accommodate in your vehicle, please call our dispatch at 954-7862 to schedule a pickup of your donations. Donations are scheduled based on driver availability and can be scheduled up to 2 weeks prior to the end of your food drive. Hawaii Foodbank will send a letter of acknowledgement per organization based on the contact information provided, however individual receipts can be requested when registering your food drive.
We will gladly assist you with the planning of your successful Food Drive!
