Do you enjoy organizing events? Are you the one among your friends who likes to entertain? What if, at your next game night or sport watching party, you invited everyone who comes to bring an item to support a local nonprofit? It could turn into a new "thing"!
A food drive, a blanket drive, a book drive, an office supply drive. The possibilities are endless!
This is a project that could be organized individually, together with friends, or you could help your children set up a drive in your neighborhood or at their school. There are no age restrictions for this kind of driving!
As you set up your drive, connect with the nonprofit you choose to learn more about what they do so you can accurately share about where the collected items are going and who they will benefit.
AREA OF INTEREST: helping, gathering, organizing, interacting, asking, supporting ACTION: host a drive for a local nonprofit. Drive options could include supporting:
WHO: this project could be done individually, with your children, with a school organization, or with a group of friends. CONNECTION: contact a local nonprofit to see what they might need/benefit from. WHAT: think outside the box! Most nonprofits need items used to support those they help, but they also need practical things like paper, ink, stamps, etc. INTERACTION: as you deliver the items you collected to the nonprofit, ask to take a tour of their facility, get to know what they do a bit more, and share that information with those who donated to the drive.
