Hold a Food Drive
Decide whether to hold your own drive or participate in a local food drive or event.
Decide how long to hold your food drive. Will it be one day, a week, a month? Or perhaps this an ongoing effort? It's entirely up to you.
Do you need posters? We can deliver them with boxes in many cases or you can download them yourself.
- Email your co-workers, friends, and neighbors to rally support.
- Set a goal and monitor the progress.
- Hold a contest between departments, classes, troops, etc. to see who can raise the most. Offer incentives for those who contribute the most to your drive.
If you're dropping off food at our Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank, you deserve extra thanks!! You've saved us additional expenses that we can redirect towards serving our clients.
The Salvation Army Renton Rotary Food Bank can drop off food collection boxes and pick up our donation. We ask that the boxes be full or close to full at the time of pick-up to allow us to be as efficient as possible. Each box is roughly the size of an office desk chair and it takes about 85 cans or boxes of food to fill one box.
In most cases, we can only pick up in the greater Renton area. However, exceptions do occur and we ask that you contact Beverly Storey at 425-255-5969 or leave her an email at email@example.com to see if we might be able to help.
We ask that you make the most of our drop-off site or consider participating in one of our ongoing events in the greater Renton area if you have collected a smaller amount of food.
Please note that November through December, our volume is especially high and it may take some time for us to approve food drive application or answer questions. We appreciate your patience. We encourage you to plan your food drive as far ahead as possible to avoid delays.
Still have questions? Please contact Beverly Storey at 425-255-5969 or firstname.lastname@example.org
