Donation Drives

We would love to help you coordinate a donation drive to benefit individuals and families served at Crisis Assistance Ministry.

Here Are 5 Simple Steps for Hosting a Donation Drive:

1.  Decide what kind of drive you would like to host. You might consider choosing items from our list of most needed items.

2.  Let us know you are planning a drive. Click the Register My Drive button to create an account and complete an interest form. This form will help us make sure you have all you need for a successful donation drive.

3.  Organize, promote, and hold your donation drive event!

  • Publicity & Use of Logo. You can download a copy of our logo and a quick guide for naming and use of logo here. If possible, please submit any flyers or other materials to our Communications Manager for approval prior to use.
  • Social Media. We would love to follow and share any social media about your drive. Share your handles and tag us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
  • We Love Photos!  Please share photos of your group and your drive by emailing our volunteer team or tagging us as noted above.
  • Collection Barrels. Please let us know if you need a donation barrel. We need a minimum of 3-days’ notice before your preferred pick up date and please note they are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The barrels are approximately 1.5 ft. x 3.5 ft. in size.

4.  Coordinate a time to drop off your donations, by emailing our volunteer team, and – with your permission – have your picture taken so we can thank you on social media.

  • Please note that we are unable to provide counts or quantities of items that are donated to us by individual groups. It is a great idea to keep your own tally of all the items you collect so that at the end of the drive you can have a final number and know how well your group did.

5.  Thank your supporters (and we will post our thanks as well)!
