Host Your Own Virtual Drive

Every child deserves confidence on the first day of school. A backpack and school supplies is part of making that possible. And you can help. By creating your own, free webpage, you can easily track, promote and collect school supplies with everyone staying in the comfort and safety of their own home.

What it is:
By hosting your own virtual school supply drive powered by Roonga, you can easily rally your coworkers, friends, family, book club or even your neighborhood to help our community's kids. Skip the donation bins, in-person shopping, and collecting and delivering supplies - do it online with your own webpage. It has never been easier to be a part of achieving this year's goal of helping 6,000 local kids with backpacks full of supplies.

How it works: 
Set a goal, a timeframe, and get your own webpage you can share and invite people to donate to help reach your goal. When your drive is done, the school supplies will be shipped directly to United Way to get into the hands of kids in need.

Tips on setting a goal for your drive:
If you are thinking about setting up a drive, or maybe you already have, we know that setting a goal can seem a little daunting, but here are some tips and insights for you to consider as you’re setting that goal for your group.

Get rewarded for reaching your goal:
Virtual drives that surpass their goal will be entered into a drawing to receive five volunteer spots at our School Supply Drive! Drawing will take place on July 12 and United Way will reach out to your drive coordinator to let them know if you won.

If you have any questions along the way, our team is ready to help! Email Erica at enygaard@unitedwaycassclay.org or call 701-237-5050 to connect with our team.
