The Pantry has a limited reach for donations of food and financial contributions, but with the help of friends and neighbors in our community, we can increase the number of supporters infinitely! Here are a few ways to make it easy, from hosting an online fundraiser, to setting up a food drive, to donating your birthday.
1. Hosting an Online Fundraiser
Hosting your own peer-to-peer fundraiser is now easier than ever with our GiveLively account! First, go to our page at https://secure.givelively.org/donate/north-liberty-community-pantry
Once you’re there, scroll DOWN to find the “I want to fundraise for this” button
Then you will fill out a form to customize your fundraiser. Upload any images you like, use it as an opportunity to advertise your business, explain your mission, and set your fundraising goal! ($1 donated buys 5 POUNDS of food.)
Press the ‘copy link’ button or ‘share this page’ to post it on your social media or email. Spread the word and you can help us reach more people than ever before!
2. Host your own Food Drive!
About 10% of the food distributed at NLCP is donated from an individual or food drive. These donations are GREATLY appreciated as they provide wider variety than the food the Pantry purchases wholesale. People of all ages have ran their own successful food drives! Encourage your business, coworkers, customers, kids, classmates, teams, bands, or whatever to collect food! Don’t be afraid to think outside the box: toiletry, feminine hygiene, seasonal items can also make for a great drive. Reach out to discuss options or your own ideas! We would be also happy to provide you with a Top Ten Needs poster or donation bins to facilitate this process. When your collection is done, please call the Pantry to arrange a donation time so we can be prepared to accept the items.
