Hosting an event in your neighbourhood, school, workplace and 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 and Community Services in their own creative way by hosting Independent 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:
- Come up with an idea – no matter how big or small, make sure it’s fun for you!
- Develop your strategy – what has to be done by when and who is going to do it?
- Contact Teri Towner to tell her about your event. We’ll post it on our website.
- Make it happen!
- Throw in a competition, involve your workplace and neighbourhood, get your friends involved.
- Have Fun!
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. We are open from 9:00-1pm on Saturdays in December.
If you have collected so much food that you are unable to fit it in your vehicle … CONGRATULATIONS! Call us at 604-931-2451 and we will arrange our driver to pick it up.
Thank you for your support!
