Host a Donation Drive

You can host a simple donation drive and deliver hope to hungry children. It's easy! Companies, individuals, places of worship and service organizations host drives for children served by Kids' Meals all of the time.  MacKenzi hosted a drive at her dance studio and collected canned goods for the families enrolled in our program.

 

Lunch Packs

Every weekday in our kitchen, we make 2,700-3,700 meals thanks to the help of 40 volunteers a day.  You can also assemble easy lunch packs at your own location and we will pick them up!  Details here.

Steps for hosting a successful drive

  1. Let us know!
  2. Pick a leader who will lead the drive and decide when and where it will happen.
  3. Decide what you want to collect, how long the drive will last and then set a goal for your donation drive.
  4. Promote your drive by posting flyers on your social media, sending out letters and emails to your friends, families, and co-workers.  Let us know if you need help!
  5. Start collecting the donated items and keep a count of what has been collected. Send out updates to your supporters regularly so they will be involved.  
  6. Coordinate with Kids' Meals about drop offs of the donation drive items.

Please email Whitney at whitney@kidsmealshouston.org if you have any questions or need ideas for making the most out of your drive! You can also check our social sites, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages for more information.
