Kid Pack Challenge

Can YOUR business make a difference in a child’s life?

Grab some of your coworkers and join this year’s Kid Pack Challenge at Helena Food Share.

Weekend nutrition is critical to a good week ahead for every child. Yet, one in five kids in the Helena area face weekend hunger, missing one or more meals. And the challenges of the past two years have made things even more challenging.

It takes time and some elbow grease to build all 1,000 kid packs every week, and it also takes donations to fill the Kid Packs with nutritious foods and snacks. Your business can join the fight against childhood hunger by joining the Kid Pack Challenge.

It’s Easy: here’s how you can help

1. Make a minimum donation of $1,000 – perhaps it comes out of your business’ community relations budget, or you can raise it by doing a fund drive, have a blue jean Friday, or other creative ways to raise money. Even better, see if your employer will match whatever you can raise – which would be just $500!

2. Gather your colleagues together and sign up for a slot to do a Kid Pack build at the Helena Food Share pantry.

  • Create a friendly competition with different teams competing against each other for who can make the most packs the fastest. (maximum 12 employees per build).
  • Or, challenge your colleagues to see which team can raise the most money in donations to help kids by promoting it on your social media, and invite your friends to donate to YOUR team! Whatever team raises the most money wins something special – a day off?
  • Every participant gets a free window cling sticker for your business or organization. Display it with pride, and tell others about Kid Packs and how they can get involved.

Let’s Get Started!
