“Khloe Kares:Host your own drive”

An easy way to make a difference in the lives of homeless people is to do a drive.  Khloe Kares has focused on toiletry drives as well as toy drives, so pick the theme that you like best and make a difference alongside us!

  1. Pick the date-range for your drive
  2. Put up flyers, send emails, text and even call your friends. If you belong to a church, temple or some other place of worship, ask if an announcement can be made about your drive. Make sure your message is clear so that you can ignite some excitement and participation
  3. Make the drive convenient. Collection sites should be easy to get to, and a natural place for people to want to go. Consider asking a local business if you can use their lobby or front entrance
  4. Get bins or boxes for the different items you are collecting, that will make it easier to keep things organized
  5. See if you can get a local business to match your donations 1-for-1, that way you can double your impact!
  6. Use social media to drive success and awareness of what you're doing. Getting the press to care is a powerful way to have more impact!
  7. Thank your donors, ask for testimonials, learn more about what motivated them to participate so you can increase your impact the next time you do it!
