Host a Drive

Cultivate Goodness and our community partner Backpacks 4 Kids provides weekend food boxes, hygiene, diapers & wipes, kids clothing, and backpacks filled with school supplies. We need help keeping our shelves stocked to meet the need. Drives are crucial to helping us meet those immediate needs. But hosting a drive doesn’t just provide much-needed items: it’s one of the best ways to get the community involved in helping families in need. Your business, organization, school, church, or community group can make a big difference by hosting a drive and providing a lift.

Current Needs

In-kind donations play an important role in helping us keep costs down and meeting the needs of underprivileged & foster children. Host a drive for one of our CURRENT NEEDS by following the steps below:

Step 1: Get Started

SIGN UP HERE

Tell us about your group and what you’d like to collect in your drive. 

 



 

Step 4: Deliver Your Donations to a Drop Off Location

We have several drop off locations. Choose the one that works best for you. Scan
the QR code to log your donation when you arrive. CLICK HERE for list of drop off locations. 

Step 2: Spread the Word

Most people want to help—they just need to be asked. You can send emails, use
postcards or flyers, or post to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. Bring up the drive at meetings and group gatherings. Host a party and ask guests to bring a donated item.

 



Step 5: Celebrate Your Success!

Remember to thank those who donated! Post pictures of your donations on social
media and other communications. Don’t forget to tag us on Facebook & Instagram

Step 3: Make it Easy to Donate

Pick a central location for people to drop off their items. For office or school drives, make sure you have collection boxes at several locations.

You can also collect items during a holiday party or office gathering. Monetary donations, including gift cards, are also welcome; in many cases, they’re the best option to get the items we need most. Offer to collect funds via Venmo or Zelle to make it easy for others to participate.

 

 

 

 

Cultivate Goodness Donation Guidelines:

Thank you so much for your willingness to help us provide needed items for
underprivileged & foster children. This helps us expand our reach to help more families in need.

Please help maximize donations by:
    1. Washing & folding donations before they are delivered.

medium coats, a bag of new wool socks).
