Several of our CARES Teams have requested a food drive flyer, so of course, we had to make it happen (we LOVE requests!). Hosting a food drive is such a great way to connect your residents back to their community, build some good will and warm fuzzies, AND it can count as an event during a particularly busy season (or, say, a cold winter when your clubhouse is under construction).
The most important thing is finding a local food bank to partner with and then asking them what items they need. Each organization has different needs, so be sure to list their top-requested items on the flyer. Food drives are especially important during those "off season" months - many people think generously around the holidays, but come January, those food pantries are all but forgotten.What a wonderful way to bless even more people through CARES!
