iCare Food Drive

The Problem

We were collecting food for the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, which is a homeless shelter in Atlantic City. More than 600,000 families and 1.35 million children experience homelessness in America! Domestic Violence is the most prevalent cause of homelessness for women and families. The Atlantic City Rescue Mission serves over 3000 homeless people each year and houses over 225 men and single women with children each night.

Plan of Action

We ran a food drive in school from November 11, 2007 (in honor of National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week, 11/11/07-11/17/07) through December 11, 2007. We created a flyer, invited student council to help. We collected food items in K-12 homerooms for 4 weeks. We collected over 5000 items, boxed it up and called the Atlantic City Rescue Mission to come pick it up!
