Make a Splash with a Summertime Food Drive

nice guys : )
Summer Drive

Hooray! Summer is finally here. With mask mandates relaxing and small events re-starting, it’s finally a great time to host that summertime food drive you’ve been thinking about. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some tips.

Make It Themed

In order to collect as many donations as possible, it’s important to make your event fun. So go ahead and make a splash with a small inflatable or kiddie pool! After all, nothing says summertime fun like a pool, right!?! The inflatable or kiddie pool will draw attention to the cause in a fun way and give employees a place to drop off their non-perishable items.

Organize Teams

A little healthy competition never hurt anyone, and it really gets a drive going! Divide your office into teams, such as accounting, sales, marketing etc. Reward the winning team with an iced coffee treat, popsicles or even a pizza party.

And Make It Easy

Simply, call your Garvey's Representative or our Customer Service Team and let them know you are hosting a food drive and when the anticipated end date is going to be so we can arrange a pick-up by one of our Nice Guys Delivery Drivers. We will pick-up your donation free of charge AND drop it off to the Greater Chicago Food Depository to make things super easy for you.

Some to the most needed items include:
• Peanut Butter
• Canned Beans
• Canned Chili
• Canned Soup or Stew
• Canned Fruit
• Canned Vegetables
• Canned Fish
