How It Works

Earn 10 Community Service Hours!

Create & Manage your own food drive.

  • Students sign up as a Neighborhood Captain.
  • Dermer Dreams delivers 100 donation bags to the captain 2 weeks before the food drive.
  • The captain creates their strategy and distributes the bags one week before the food drive.
  • On the date of the food drive, the student, along with a parent or adult, picks up the donations and deliver them to the Dermer Dreams drop site.
  • Upon delivery, the captain receives a certificate for 10 Hours of Community Service.
 

IT’S THIS SIMPLE. WE PROVIDE YOU EVERYTHING AND THERE IS NO COST TO YOU!

It is the Neighborhood Captain’s job to manage the program from start to finish.

Strategies To Help You Create Your Own Food Drive:

EVERY BAG COUNTS!

  • Text family and friends who live nearby to request they fill up one or more bags.
  • Raise money through Venmo to go shopping to fill a portion of your bags.
  • Distribute bags to people in your community.
  • Request for bags to be filled at a supermarket or any similar place.
  • Give out bags in front of a supermarket and ask if people will fill the bag.
  • Include a personal note inside the bag about why you want to help people who are hungry.
  • Offer personal pick-up times where someone can text you to pick up their bag.

 

Be Creative and Design the best strategy for you!
