Host Food Drive

Send this page to a friend Email envolope

Week-in-and-week-out, all year long, The Salvation Army of Waco distributes food to individuals and families in need.

 

WHY HOST A FOOD DRIVE?

At The Salvation Army's food pantry, the organization distributes hundreds of boxes of groceries each month. When supplies of food run low, the only alternative is for The Salvation Army to purchase more food to re-stock the pantry shelves.

When companies, churches, schools, civic clubs and other groups conduct food drives for The Salvation Army, they provide an important solution to buying food items thereby allowing the Army to use the funds to help people in many other ways

 

HOW DO I GET STARTED? 

First, determine a  location, date and time-frame for your organization to host the drive. Contact Christie Harper at (254) 756-7271 to make or confirm arrangements and finalize preparations.

The Salvation Army of Waco responsibilities include providing boxes (if needed) for individuals to drop off food during the allotted time frame chosen by coodinator.  Then, a Salvation Army truck will pick up the food/donation boxes at the end of the drive.  The Salvation Army can also design flyers, send-outs, or any other marketing pieces to promote community and organization involvement.

Local media may also be contacted per coordinator approval.  Public Relations Director will also be available to come and take photos as needed.
