Start A Local Community Donation Drive Or Fundraiser

How to get started

Step 1: Promote your drive

We can help! We have an entire toolkit of marketing materials: posters, flyers, social media ideas, plus step-by-step instructions. Just contact one of our Area Development Managers below. And don’t forget to start advertising at least 2-4 weeks prior so people can plan ahead.

Step 2: Pre-collect items while you promote

The best way to ensure your drive is a success is to start collecting before the actual donation day. That way, if inclement weather or some other unforeseen circumstance occurs, you’ve still got donations to deliver. Think of it as an insurance policy. Plus, it’s always good to get a head start.

Step 3: Make the exchange

Once your donation drive is over, you can deliver the collected items directly to one of our store Community Donation Center near you, or speak with a representative about alternate delivery options.  We’ll weigh the items received and a check will be mailed to your organization.
