The Food Pantry is always in need of monetary donations. Although we receive great support from community food drives, we purchase several tons of food from the Greater Boston Food Bank and local stores each week in order to keep our shelves stocked for all of our guests.
Below are some ideas to help us raise greatly needed funds.
Sponsor a cash donation event or drive
Invite your colleagues to bring monetary donations to your next function, or to your workplace or civic facility for a day, week or month. Every dollar that is donated gives us $4 worth of buying power at the Greater Boston Food Bank!
Sponsor a Business Challenge
Your group can agree to match monetary contributions received and tracked by the Wakefield Food Pantry for a one-month period, for any percentage you choose. Please call us to discuss specific details. Your organization will receive the maximum possible local publicity for your generous financial support.
Run a Fundraiser
Organize and run a fundraiser such as a car wash, tournament, or yard sale giving proceeds to the pantry.
Corporate Support of Donations
Some organizations support their employees’ donations with matching funds to the non-profit. Find out if your company offers this program and sign up!
