Select one of the participation options below:

Create a Page

Choose this option if you plan on setting up one page where everyone will donate. These drives can include a personal event, a company drive, an event for a school or organization, even an honor or a memorial page.

Start a Team

Will you be a Team Captain that will recruit other team members to set up their own personal virtual food drive pages? Then starting a team is the option for you! Team pages are perfect for company-wide drives in which divisions will compete, a marathon or event in which runners or participants will hold their own fundraising drives, a school or college in which alumni or parents will host their own personal drives. Want to see some examples? View other Team Pages.

Join an Existing Team
