Does your workplace want to create a “CANpaign Food Drive Challenge”?
Here are a few ways to track online donations in the spirit of friendly competition:
Create an Excel spreadsheet for tracking - select a Point of Contact to create a spreadsheet and compile the information. Employees can email the number of food items they purchased online - or - the dollar amount they donated online. The POC can input the emailed information onto the spreadsheet for tracking totals.
Create a Drop-Box - similar to the suggestion above, select a Point of Contact to create a spreadsheet and compile the information. Employees can use slips of paper provided to fill in the number of food items they purchased online - or - the dollar amount they donated online, then put those slips of paper in a form of drop-box. The POC can collect all of the paper slips from the drop box and input the collected information onto a spreadsheet for tracking totals.
Create a Google Doc for tracking - select a Point of Contact to create a Google Doc and compile the information. The POC will need to have a Google account to create a Google Doc. To learn how to create a Google Doc, click here. Employees can then use the link provided by the POC to fill out their individual Google Doc form with number of food items they purchased online - or - the dollar amount they donated. Through Google Docs, the POC can easily convert the responses into statistical data for tracking totals.
