If you plan on bringing a grocery bag of food for admission, get your paper bag ready and start filling it up! I went through my pantry already and was able to fill a bag with no problem.
Not sure what to give? The most requested items by the food bank are:
- Canned meats like tuna, stew and chili (pop-tops preferred)
- Canned vegetables
- Pasta, pasta sauce
- Healthy cereals
- Peanut butter
- Baby food
- Baby formula
If you plan on paying $20 at the door, then you'll need cash. You also have the silent auction, live auction, raffle, lunch, and dinner to worry about!
Yes, I know we live in the digital age and checks are old-fashioned. However, having some checks handy will let you bid on items without worrying about how much cash you have in your pocket.
There will be a game library that anyone can use, as well as many other gamers bringing their own games. You can also bring your favorite games from your own collection.
#5. A Friend
The more people that come to the event, the more successful it will be. So if you have a co-worker, friend, or family member who wants to help a good cause, bring them along and I can guarantee they will have a good time!
