Food & Funds Drive Guidelines

 

Food Drive 101
  • Plan Ahead - Decide when you want to hold your food drive and contact Carey Sealy at csealy@fredfood.org or (540) 371-7666 x 126. We can provide you with materials to make your drive a success. We can also supply you with our logo for flyers.

  • Set a Goal - Competition brings out the best in people, so if you are working within a group or organization, it helps to set goals and award prizes. The rivalry and the support within the group will encourage donations more.

  • Encourage Financial Contributions - Forget to bring cans? Allow people to write checks. Every $1 donated allows up to 3 meals being distributed. We will happily send receipts for tax purposes to anyone who wishes to donate money to your drive, just be sure to collect their contact information.

  • Deliver Your Donations - All food drive donations can be dropped off at our warehouse between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM. For larger donations, or for help locating one of our partner agencies that is closer to you, contact the FRFB.

  • Celebrate Your Success - Organize a ceremony at the conclusion of the food drive to recognize and thank all of your donors.
