GIVING BACK - GETTING INVOLVED
Giving back and getting involved has never been easier - Hosting an event in your neighbourhood, school, workplace or place of worship is a great way to build connections and have fun.
Each year, hundreds of caring individuals and groups raise money and collect food for SHARE Family & Community Services by hosting their own special events. These events include everything from bake sales and lemonade stands to golf tournaments and food drives. Are you ready to organize your own fundraising or food drive event for SHARE? All it takes is a little creativity, some careful planning, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of the people around us.
To host a food drive or fundraiser:
- What would you like to do? Come up with an idea, and no matter how big or small.
- Develop your strategy – what has to be done by when and who is going to do it.
- Tell us about your event by contacting our event coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-529-5107. We will get back to you within 48 hours. Please give us two weeks advance notice and we’ll promote it as best we can.
- Promote your event in the community.
- Use social media to generate buzz and community involment.
- Have fun!
New to event planning?
Our event toolkit has templates for event planning, logos, and templates to help you make your event the best it can be. Have more questions? Call Jake at 604-529-5107 or email him and our Fund Development Officer will be more than happy to help you out!
HOSTING A FOOD DRIVE?
If you’re hosting a food drive, it’s very helpful if you bring your food directly to the depot. It allows us to direct money to the costs of distributing food rather than to paying for gas. The Food Depot is located at 2615 Clarke Street, Port Moody and open from 9:30am-7:00pm Mondays and 9:30am – 4:00 Monday through Friday.

Successful food drive? Congratulations!
If you have collected so much food that you are unable to fit everything in your vehicle, call us at 604-931-2451 & we will arrange to have your donation picked up.
If you are hosting a corporate event, contact Valerie Hutton at 604-529-5119 or by email: email@example.com
