There are about twenty children in my class and if each brought in one can or bag of food we would really be able to double the donation JDaniel and I have been taking.
Steps for Planning a Food Drive
So, I decorated a donation box and put it just outside our classroom door. I thought if other parents saw it they might ask what we were doing and want to help too. JDaniel and I added a few cans of our own to get the drive started. People like to see that others have been giving. I thought this might inspire the kids and their parents.
The box was out last Sunday and will be out again next Sunday. I can’t wait to see how many items we are able to collect and give to others.
I bet you could hold a food drive for your Sunday school class, school, or civic group. The people in your groups and the food bank with benefit from the food drive.
