Here are some details about having an event!
Payments to the individual organizations are calculated based on the volume (in pounds) that are collected. A minimum of 1,000 pounds or 35 large yard bags is required. Donated household items (non-clothing) are measured separately and treated as add-on value. Large furniture, mattresses, appliances, and dangerous products are excluded.
Here are some best practices to ensure that your event is the biggest and best!
- Set a minimum number of bags as the standard/expectation to be collected by each participant (10 bags)
- Incentivize participants and volunteers by awarding the winner with a meaningful prize (highest number of bags collected above the minimum standard)
- Have an adult leader clearly communicate that participation is required by all members in order to be a member of the organization (team)
