HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We are continuously looking for ways to lower the cost of our kits so we can reach more children. This project will help us do just that- because the more in kind donations we receive, the more product we can purchase which will increase our delivery numbers.

DESCRIPTION

Hold a product collection drive for items that go into Connor's Kindness Kits. For more on what goes into a Kindness Kit, click here.


ITEMS NEEDED

Collection bins and signs, if doing an in person collection


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS


NEXT STEPS

Sending or dropping off items to a nonprofit? Don't forget to tell them you found them through PGK! Download and print a packing slip here.

1. Email CKP at connorskindnessproject@yahoo.com to get a list of requested items and other information needed to host a successful drive.  We have flyers and ideas we can share!

2. Decide how you will hold the drive - will it be 100% virtual or will you ask people to drop off items in person?

3. If virtual, set up an Amazon Wish  List or other online shopping option for needed items. If in person, decide on a time frame and location for collections.

4. If in person, decorate collection bins with signs showing the collection period and items requested.

5. Promote your drive via email, social media, flyers, etc. Ask a parent (or aunt/uncle/grandparent) to share at work or within their community.

6. After the collection period, contact CKP at connorskindnessproject@yahoo.com to set up a time to drop off the collected items.

*Note: If you wish to conduct a 100% virtual drive, you can also set up your Wish List to deliver directly to us. Contact us at connorskindnessproject@yahoo.com for more detail.
