Delivering Groceries

Our goal: To collect non-perishable food items to help restock our

local food pantries in support of residents in need.  

In past years, the Greater High Point community has held many large food drives such as The Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger campaign and a multitude workplace giving food drive campaigns to help restock local pantries.  With the onset of the Coronavirus, many of these food drives - that would have taken place in the spring and early summer - were cancelled due to COVID-19 health and safety issues.  This has made a detrimental impact on local families and food pantry resources. 

UWGHP stands ready to assist the most vulnerable in our community, those living paycheck to paycheck and those struggling to make ends meet. It’s imperative we act now to provide immediate assistance to our neighbors in need and help make a difference during this trying time.

Canpaign Toolkit

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.
