Have an event coming up? Turn it into a Food Drive!
Almost any event (a sports game, concert recital, school play, holiday party or family gathering) will work as a food drive, just ask the people that are attending to bring a couple of cans along to help those in need.
Please consider hosting a Thanksgiving-themed Food Drive for the Crisis Control pantries. This holiday season, we hope to provide our clients with all the necessary items to cook a Thanksgiving meal for their families. Click the Thanksgiving Meal Boxes image above to get redirected to our Thanksgiving Food Drive flyer and see items we need to be collected. Drop off donations from 9 AM - 2 PM at the Winston-Salem office or 9 AM-Noon at the Kernersville office.
Our food pantry Amazon Smile Wishlist: Give through Amazon
Check out our food drive flyer for our most-needed items. In addition to these items, we can use can openers year-round in both of our pantries to give out to clients.
Set a goal: Create huge poster boards that you can display in a prominent place with the goal written all over it.
Make it easy to give: Provide grocery bags or boxes for food or other donations.
Be Loud: Use some creativity to decorate the boxes. Hang your fliers EVERYWHERE!!! This is your food drive, everyone should know about it!
Take Pictures: We’re always looking for great shots to put on the web or social media! Make sure to tag us on social media, so we can help spread the word about your drive.
Remember to thank everyone that donates. Tell them just how awesome they are for supporting Crisis Control Ministry and families within the local community who need food.
