Need a fundraiser idea? We have plenty, A to Z!
Promote community service to your students, teachers, and administrators through a common fundraiser for Cabarrus Meals On Wheels. Our kit includes two sample letters that you can easily customize. One letter goes home with students to explain the fundraiser to parents, and the other goes to teachers to encourage them to make a donation in exchange for casual dress days. The kit also includes a car for students to cut out and color for each $1 donated.
All of the materials in the kit are intended to show you how one particular fundraiser was successful at a school; you may freely use them as is or create your own.
Using online tools such as Active.com and Razoo.com, you can create your own webpages — free! — to raise funds for our mission.
Razoo was founded as “a social network for social good.” When you set up a free account, you can create a fundraising page for Cabarrus Meals On Wheels that you control. You can also embed the DonateAnywhere widget on your personal website to allow others to donate without leaving your site.
Active.com is an option for sports-related fundraising, such as races or marathons. According to the website, Active Network’s team of experienced professionals will help you develop, manage, and promote online donations and fundraising. The online donation and fundraiser programs allow your staff, volunteers, participants, and donors to easily make contributions online to raise money for your charity.
Raise awareness of senior hunger within your company just by brown-bagging your lunch, auctioning off a prime parking space, wearing jeans to work, or growing a mustache!

WHAT: “Sack Senior Hunger” fundraiser
WHEN: Any time of the year that’s right for your company
HOW: Employees may bring a sack lunch to work on a designated day and donate the amount they would have spent eating out. Did you know that for only $5, we can cook, package, and deliver a fresh, nutritious meal to a homebound client anywhere within Cabarrus County?
WHY: Our homebound clients cannot afford the effects of diminished nutrition on their health, yet they cannot easily get out to buy the nutritious food they need, let alone cook it for themselves. We help when they no longer can live entirely independently but do not need full-time nursing care.
