Thank you for holding a pandemic-safe
Food + Fund Drive!
Your help #fillingheartsandcarts
will make an immediate impact!
Food and FUNdraisers can be, well, fun! A theme, a friendly competition, a team photo for 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. Donations of grocer gift cards are also put to good use! Receipt of donation are available.
Some theme Ideas:
> DFP's 45th year: 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 Peanut butter and Jelly day, etc.) Click here for some upcoming National Days:
> Join DFP Pantry themes: March is DFP's birthday, April is our Volunteer Appreciation month, September is Hunger Awareness month
> Create Day-of-the-Week themes, such as:
Mac n Cheese Monday
Wishlist Wednesday (DFP's wishlist is on our home page)
Three dollar Thursday
> Single item collection: Ask for just one thing such as $10 or any one item from our most needed list (posted on our HOME page)
Parents and Grandparents and more might appreciate being honored with a donation in their name
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 Party tie ins - such as a donation for the pantry at the party

An online donation drive: Cash/Checks/Online-Donations are welcomed. Sites like GIVE BUTTER can facilitate your fund drive. 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!
Photo for social media? Please tag Dublin Food Pantry in your Facebook or Instagram photo! If you arrange a time for a photo at the pantry, we will work to include that photo in a DFP thank you post.
