National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is celebrated each year the week before Thanksgiving. The National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness come together in to bring awareness to the issues at hand.
During this week, schools, communities, and cities take part in a nationwide effort to bring to light the problems of hunger and homelessness in their surrounding areas. Charitable fundraisers are held to raise money helping financially alleviate these unfortunate circumstances.
Promotional products from ePromos are great tools to use in your efforts to create awareness for National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week in your community. One great way to raise money for the cause is to purchase high quality promotional items a wholesale prices and resend them individually at a higher price keeping the difference for the charity.
If you are a company looking to bring the concept of helping reduce hunger in your community you might consider organizing your employees to volunteer at a local food kitchen or homeless shelter. Each person that attends could get a t-shirt or hat. Other ideas include running a company food drive where employee can bring in non perishable food and you can give custom aprons, logo kitchen utensils, or promotional baseball caps to everyone who makes a donation. You can have your company name on these items and commemorate the event as well in the same imprint area. Hunger and Homelessness awareness is a great way to get your employees into the hoilday spirit. ePromos has tons of giveaways for your fundraising events and our consultants would welcome to opportunity to create a great event with you.
