We encourage corporations, churches, schools, community clubs, and friends to work together and organize a drive to benefit our children. Did you know each week we use 75 boxes of cereal and wash 200 loads of laundry!

  • Make it a fun contest between employees or students as to who can collect the most items.
  • At your next holiday party or social gathering host a collection of gift cards for a fun outing like going to the movies.
