NOW YOUR COMPANY, GROUP OR FRIENDS CAN HELP US BY HAVING A PACKING PARTY.
PACK HOMEWORK SUPPLIES FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KIDS EXPERIENCING POVERTY, SO THEY CAN KEEP UP IN SCHOOL.
WHY HAVE A RAINBOW PACK PACKING PARTY?
Whether you are a youth group or a large company or somewhere in-between, volunteer projects naturally create a positive experience for the whole group while benefiting the community. Community service projects can enhance your groups image as a good corporate citizen, elevate member or employee pride and provide everyone with a great group experience.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR US AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Besides feeling really good about helping us out, we will also add your name/logo to the sponsor page on our website for this year.
With a donation of 500 Rainbow Packs or more we will print your name/logo on the banner used at an event and any other material where sponsors are able to be featured. We will also let you know the date of the event for the school that your company has helped sponsor and, with the school's permission, we will allow at least 4 volunteers to attend the give away event. If your company would rather remain anonymous that is okay too.
Please take a look at the charts below for the donation amount and recommended number of volunteers. Custom events can be planned, so please don't hesitate to reach out with questions and send them to Lee@RainbowPack.org.
WE WANT TO SPONSOR A SCHOOL, BUT ARE NOT IN LOS ANGELES, WHAT CAN WE DO?
Right now we can only plan parties in LA. But you can still sponsor a school and we can pack the supplies up for you with the help of some of our wonderful volunteers. You still get acknowledged as a sponsor and can come out for the event at the school you are supporting if you would like to.
HOW DO WE SIGN UP?
It's easy to get started. Just fill out the handy form below and someone will get back to you with more information as soon as possible. If you already have a date in mind and budget, you can send that information with your request. We will get back to you with available dates and times and the information about the school that we recommend that your donation support. Right now the schools on our waiting list range in size from about 200 students to 1,500. You can sponsor a portion of a school or an entire school.
Once you have the date, time and location for your packing party confirmed, you get to sit back and let us take care of getting all the supplies organized and ready to bring to your party.
On the day of the event we request that you have several strong people available to help us unload the supplies from the truck and set up the materials. Then at the end of the event we ask for help in loading it all back into the truck for us.
Set up and clean up usually take about an hour each. The time needed for packing depends on the number of people at the party and how many supplies we are packing. Please contact Lee@RainbowPack.org with questions or to plan a custom event.
WHAT EXACTLY WILL WE DO AT THE RAINBOW PACK PACKING PARTY?
After we get all set up, we will have a short presentation to tell your group a bit more about Rainbow Pack and the problem that we are trying to address by giving elementary school students Rainbow Packs (new backpacks and homework supplies).
We will also give your group a huge round of applause for taking the time to help, not just by funding more Rainbow Packs, but by giving your time to pack and be a part of the process.
Being a non profit we rely on kind people from the community to volunteer their time to help fund and pack Rainbow Packs so we can help more kids.
After the presentation we will show everyone all the great homework supplies that go into a Rainbow Pack and then we will all get packing!*
*Please note we do not put the supplies into the backpacks, they go in a separate bag.
