Host a Holiday Fundraiser
Welcome to our Holiday Fundraising Tool kit! We have put this tool kit together to make it easy for you to help those in our community. Fundraising is a great way to have fun and give back while doing so. Get your friends or office colleagues together to collect money, food, toys or all of the above! You can even bring in some friendly competition to see who can collect more! This is also a great way to also get your kids involved and teach them about the importance of giving back during the holidays.
Want to collect funds online? No problem! You can set up your own fundraising page and all the money earned will come directly to SHARE.
Thank you for wanting to SHARE Joy this Christmas! The funds you collect will make a big difference in the lives of those most in need in our community.

Step 4 – Have Fun!
Fundraising should be fun and is a great way to build team and community spirit. Make sure that while at your event you grab some photos, and celebrate what you are doing on social media. We have created some fun tools that you can print off and place around your food drive, hand out to people as they pass by and a sign for your donation boxes.
Print some of the Shopping Lists off to give to people so that they donate what is most needed for the SHARE Food Bank.
