Thanksgiving Bonanza Volunteer Signup 2014

So this Thanksgiving, like every Thanksgiving, Long Island Food Not Bombs is organizing its largest events ever and now, more than ever, we require your help to pull them off. We ask that you take a pledge to stand with us. You can pledge to just be there, pledge to help us collect clothing & materials, pledge to spread the word; pledge to donate some funds - basically we ask you to pledge your help.

Solidarity is about a community coming together and we hope you join us in making that happen. The following is our pledge/signup form with different ways to help, but please don't feel limited by this. We welcome creative ideas and would love for your thoughts on how you'd like to make this event even better. Hell, we even have a text-box where you can add your ideas :) Also, please don't feel like you have to signup for everything... if you don't want to that is. Without a doubt, your help with one thing is just as valuable as your help with ten things.

Please take this pledge, spread the word through facebook, twitter, email and word of mouth. Help get your friends to take the pledge as well!

Set a goal for yourself. Before Nov. 23rd. Can you collect 10 large bags of clothing from your friends and family? I bet you can! How bout a few boxes of books or some toys for the upcoming holidays? Any amount, small or monstrous, would be an incredible help to our efforts.

Don't get overwhelmed, collecting materials is pretty easy. Start by spreading the word to your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc... You'd be surprised about the great things people would love to share for a good cause. You can spread the word on facebook, create a donation bin for your office and hit up that pack-rat friend of yours (we all have one).

You can also find more information on collecting/sharing clothing and book on our get involved page. Again, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
