Donation Collections and Fundraising Ideas
We are collecting non-perishable food (list available), gift cards to local grocery stores for perishables, new unwrapped gifts for children 0-17 (gift cards are ideal for kids 10+).
The need is GREAT this year and the focus of the hampers will be food.
Team/staff/business challenges- come up with an idea and challenge others to do the same or beat:
- Spruce Grove Girl Guides are helping out by challenging all units to bring in non-perishables
- Make arangements to collect donations at a local grocery or retail store, and give out hamper information
- One hockey team will complete 2 family’s hampers and challenge other teams to do the same or beat
A business challenging other like businesses to some kind of donation competition
Name ‘items of the week’ and rally staff to bring in as much as possible of that item that week; have different items the following week, etc.
Create a challenge of your choice!
Choose a theme- rally around an idea:
- host a fundraiser BBQ to collect donations and display your community support for local residents in need
Everyone brings in a grocery store gift card for ‘Jean Fridays’ at work, build a gift card wreath with the donated cards
Build a tower of non-perishable food into something creative in your front lobby
Gambling fun- staff/players each bring in 5 scratch and win cards; internal selling of tickets for the lottery package and a winner is drawn, with proceeds to the Christmas Hampers
Work/team gift exchanges going towards the Hampers- can come up with a theme (Secret Santa- buy that person what they think they would have liked as a teenager, child, etc.)
Portion of sales of something going towards the Hampers, or giving a discount if people donate to your Christmas Hamper collection
