In response to COVID-19, Caring For Miami is launching Virtual Packing Events!
Over the years we have loved coordinating employee engagement events to provide hunger-free weekends to food insecure children. However, due to the current need for social distancing, we’ve decided to offer a new and engaging way to allow companies and organizations to help us make sure kids get the food they need this school year.
This year, Caring For Miami is providing a unique and engaging way to help your company build connections and camaraderie during this difficult time. Now, your company can host a Virtual Packing Event that will help Caring For Miami to feed a rapidly growing number of food insecure kids. Regardless of how our schools decide to meet this year, Caring For Miami is committed to feeding food insecure children, and adapting to our new reality, to ensure no child goes hungry.
What’s a Virtual Packing Event?
Instead of gathering your employees to physically pack bags, they’ll work remotely, as a team, to conduct a Virtual Packing Event. Here’s how it works:
- First, you’ll determine the number of bags that your company aims to virtually “pack”. Virtual Packing Event levels start at 250 bags with a fundraising goal of $1,250, a cost per bag of $5.
- Caring For Miami will create a personalized online donation portal for your company. Here, employees can give, invite others to give and see progress towards your goal.
- Get creative and make it a competition between company departments! Winner gets a an extra 4 hours of Paid Time Off! Together your company will work together to reach a common goal for good!
- Perhaps your company can match employee donations to help meet your goal.
Whatever way you spin it your Virtual Packing Event will go a long way in helping provide meals to children in need. Virtual Packing Event donations will go directly towards covering the costs of prepackaged food for disadvantaged children.
In addition to preparing your online event portal, Caring For Miami can also provide social media content, virtual flyers, and tips to make your Virtual Packing Event as engaging as possible during these days of social distancing.
To show our appreciation, Caring For Miami will highlight your companies Virtual Packing Event throughout our social media platforms and your company logo will land a well deserved spot on our websites, Heart For People – MVP’s!
