    If you are planning on organizing a collection for one of the above projects, below are some easy steps to get started.
    1. Supplies and Help- Write down a list of supplies you will need to organize the collection, including volunteers to assist you in organizing and promoting it.

    2. Drop off locations- Think of and confirm drop-off dates and locations. [This could be at a local monthly meeting with your organization or public facilities.]

    3. Connect- Contact local areas such as your after school or daycare centers, faith organizations, library, scout groups, or even the school.

    4. Develop flyers and collect emails-Make sure to state the date and locations for the drop-off and who will benefit from the donations. List and gather the items should be new or gently used.

    5. Contact- Tell all of your friends and local groups. Ask groups to forward your email/flyer to through local newsletters, email blasts, social media, or allow you to post your flyer in their buildings.[especially if you have a pick up box there]

    6. Pick-up-Make sure there is someone that can assist you in picking up the items once the collection is over. You may want to check on them weekly if it is a month long collection project.
    7. Containers- Create a box or purchase/use a plastic container to place the items in. You can ask for large boxes at stores or food warehouses.

    8. Schedule the drop-off to the organization or place you are donating to at least one week before the date you plan to give them the items. This gives you time to go through the items and make sure some of them are not damaged or the incorrect items. Keep a tally of the number of items you collected so you can let the facility know how many you are donating. This helps them know if they have enough for everyone and helps you set a goal for the following year or next project.

    9. Divide your tasks - don't do it all yourself. Delegate- Such as picking up at certain locations, handing out flyers, sending emails, creating boxes, or posters.
