A New Year. A New Way to Give
We are excited to announce that the newest tool in the fight to end hunger is here!
The TAFB Virtual Food Drive, teamtafb.org, is our online fundraising site designed to be an alternative to running a community food drive. It’s a great way for you to join Team TAFB and invite your friends, family and colleagues to join too. Through the virtual food drive, you can create your own fundraising page or team fundraising page to raise support for Tarrant Area Food Bank’s work to feed hungry North Texans.
The Faces of Hunger
Hunger is a reality for one of six people of all ages and backgrounds in TAFB’s 13-county service area. One in four children live in a food-insecure household. People facing hunger may be your neighbors or your work colleagues. He or she may be the child in school sitting next to your son or daughter.
$1 Equals 5 Meals
A dollar goes a long way at TAFB. With the monetary donations we receive, we are able to purchase fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and dairy products at prices much lower than what you can find in stores. For every dollar raised, we can provide food for five meals to hungry children, families and seniors in North Texas.
Making it Easy to Make a Difference
The TAFB Virtual Food Drive gives individuals and groups an opportunity to make a difference in their community in a way they haven’t been able to before. Now anyone can raise funds online to support our mission. When you register on teamtafb.org, you can use the site’s fundraising tools to send out emails and connect to social media to spread the word about your virtual food drive campaign.
As a virtual food drive coordinator, you’ll also receive tips on how to reach campaign goals, graphics to share online and more. Anyone who donates to a campaign can follow the campaign’s progress on teamtafb.org.
The physical labor involved in running a traditional food drive is removed with the virtual food drive option. It’s eco-friendly and more cost-efficient as well. The virtual food drive is accessible anywhere there is an internet connection. It’s a great tool for those who are on the go and looking to make a positive impact in their community.
You can get started today by visiting teamtafb.org and clicking on Create an Event.
