HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
While many wonderful volunteers bring joy to families on Sundays, behind-the-scenes support keeps our organization growing! Making collection boxes helps us spread the word about Sunday Friends and collect essential items for our families in need.
We’re so glad you are interested in creating one or more collection boxes. They are fun to make and serve a very valuable purpose, helping us collect items such as school supplies and basic necessities. And if you want to do a collection drive too, that's another great way to help!
- A collapsible cardboard box, approximately 18”wide x 18”deep x 24” tall: Make sure it’s reasonably sturdy. (We purchase ours through U-Haul – it’s called the Dish Barrel Box.)
- 4 poster boards, probably white
- Giant garbage bag
- Clear packing tape
- Markers, colored paper, and various other craft supplies
- You will also need to print out flyers about Sunday Friends (provided)
Make sure you have thoroughly examined the instructions on our webpage. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com or (408) 217-9587 and provide the following information: Name/group and group leader name, contact info, estimated no. of boxes you will be decorating, expected date of completion, and whether you are also doing a drive (or just making boxes).
