We’ve collected a list of some fun ways that groups have raised food and funds for Wilsonville Community Sharing, along with some success stories. We’d love to hear your ideas too!
Fun ideas for raising food and funds
Organize pledge drives. Ask family and friends to pledge money if you walk a specific distance.
Skip lunch on certain days and donate the cost of lunch. A class of students that usually has cocoa and cookies on Friday, instead had a symbolic snack, raising $150 for WCS.
Recycle your junk at a sale: “One person’s junk is another’s treasure.”
Sponsor bake sales.
Hold taco or chili feeds.
Organize salad, soup and potato bars.
Hold pizza parties.
Sponsor an ice-cream social.
Hold a potluck.
Initiate a book sale.
Organize a silent auction.
Auction your managers at a “walk-an-hour-in-my-shoes” auction.

Sponsor a craft bazaar.
Collect food and funds at film festivals.
Collect food and funds at basketball games, mini-marathons, etc.
Place donation jars and food bins near break rooms, copiers and fax machines.
Bag it. Sponsor a brown-bag lunch. Ask staff to donate the cost of a lunch. Or ask people to donate a lunch bag full of nonperishable foods.
Generate pyramid power. Have teams build a pyramid of food. Or ask teams to bring foods representing the nutritional food pyramid.
Have groups or teams donate a meal.
