Thank you for holding a pandemic-safe

Food + Fund Drive!

Your help #fillingheartsandcarts

will make an immediate impact!

​​​

Food +essential drives and FUNdraisers can be, well, fun! A theme (ideas below), a friendly competition, a team photo of collected items on Facebook or Instagram - all add to the spirit of feeling good while doing good.

 

While collecting items is helpful, DFP can always stretch a financial donation, for every $9 donated, we can purchase about $90 worth of most needed food.

 

Receipts are always available and Dublin Food Pantry is a 501(3)c nonprofit. When your fund drive is over, please come in for an in-pantry photo. Just because your gift is online, our thanks can be in person!

 

♡ Some theme Ideas:

 

​  - We CAN fight hunger: Since cans of soup and cans or ready-to-eat-food like spaghetti, ravioli, chili, and so on are MOST NEEDED. This CAN be a great food drive

 - DFP's 45th anniversary is in 2021: Aiming for $45 or $450 dollar donation or 45 or 4500 pounds of food would be a great way to celebrate 45 years of helping our community

 -Tie in with National Days: (like collecting on October 24th which is National Food Day) Click here for some upcoming National Days:

 - Join DFP Pantry themes: September is Hunger Awareness month, October is stock up for Holiday Helpings, and so on...

 -  Create Day-of-the-Week themes, such as:

Mac n Cheese Monday

Toothbrush/paste Tuesday

Wishlist Wednesday (DFP's wishlist is on our home page)

Three dollar Thursday or Three CAN Thursday

Feel-Good Friday

 -  Single item collection: Ask for just one thing such as $10 or any one item from our most needed list

 - Personal inspiration: Name your drive for a friend, family member, or co-worker or anyone who inspires you. Who wouldn't appreciate being honored with a donation in their name?

 - Neighborhood collections: Neighbors helping neighbors is one of our themes - and neighborhood drives show us how wonderful it can be to get to know your neighbors in this way.

 - Birthday giving: We have been beyond thankful for those who dedicate all or part of their birthday celebration with a visit to Dublin Food Pantry to donate birthday gifts to the pantry

 - ONLINE DRIVE Take your food + fundraiser online, some ideas:

Online Facebook fundraisers have been successful - find out more here:​​ https://www.facebook.com/help/990087377765844

An online donation drive: Cash/Checks/Online-Donations are (of course) welcomed. Sites like GIVE BUTTER www.givebutter.com can facilitate your fund drive for our pantry - in fact - we use this for our pantry events.
