Get started today
We have two great ways to support Valley Outreach this March, the FoodShare March Campaign and the Only New Will Do Socks & Undies Drive.
1. Select which campaign you’d like to focus on and use our supporting materials linked below to generate excitement and ask for support. If you’re feeling ambitious you can do both!
2. Pick dates between Feb. 28 and March 28 to host your event and collect funds and drive items.
3. Consider setting up a digital fundraiser at www.givemn.org/organization/Valley-Outreach. Just click Fundraise to get started – it’s really easy.
4. Drop off items collected during your drive and financial donations by Thursday, March 31, 2022.
FoodShare March Campaign
Every Spring, Valley Outreach participates in the biggest statewide food and fund drive of the year, the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign. We partner with local businesses, faith communities, community groups, and individuals.
Interested in hosting a food or fund drive for Valley Outreach as part of March FoodShare 2022? Email [email protected].
Only New Will Do Socks and Undies Drive
The Only New Will Do Socks and Underwear Drive is a reinvention of our popular Undie Sunday Week. We distribute thousands of pairs of socks and underwear in all sizes and styles for every member of the family every year. Since October 1, 2021 (the start of our fiscal year), we’ve distributed more than 13,780 pairs of new socks and underwear. This year we have a $5,000 challenge gift that we’re hoping we can double!
Interested in hosting an Only New Will Do Socks and Underwear drive or fund drive for Valley Outreach? Contact [email protected] to get started.
Important note about drive-up donations: If you donate other clothing with a socks & undies donation, please keep them separate and let the volunteer attendant know which bags have socks & undies in them. Our team can get these items out to clients quicker that way!
