- Auction/Silent Auction
- Solicit items to be donated and hold an auction (live or silent).
- Possible items include restaurant gift cards, sporting event tickets, sports memorabilia, vacation packages, hotel stays, etc.
- Request that these items be donated by your organization, local vendors, retailers and/or restaurants, so that 100% of proceeds benefit the KidsPeace KEYS program.
- Host a drive to collect luggage, duffel bags and suitcases (new or gently used). Children in foster care often must carry their belongings in large black garbage bags. By collecting these donations, you help provide a feeling of ownership and dignity to our youth.
- Host a drive to collect items for “Family Night” packages, these types of item include, but are not limited to:
- Board games
- Movie tickets
- Restaurant gift cards
- Host a drive to collect baby items. Please note: all donations must be new. Thank you for helping mothers and children in need.
In the Workplace
- Shadow Day
- Our older youths are making decisions on what they want to do after they graduate high school. Help them learn more about your career, company and/or industry.
- This hands-on experience guides career aspirations.
- Share your shadow with colleagues to give the participant a broader look into the organization and different job functions.
- Jeans Day
- Embrace a more casual atmosphere on Friday! Forgo the usual business slacks or skirts, and allow jeans. Ask employees to donate $5 for each Friday they wish to wear jeans.
- Up the ante! For $25, employees let employees wear jeans and their favorite sports jersey.
- All collections will benefit the KidsPeace KEYS program.
