Why fundraise for the Healing Center?
The Healing Center needs a refrigerated truck so that we can safely collect and transfer foods like milk, meat, and produce from donors to our guests. Our current truck is old and breaks down often, which then costs us thousands of dollars in repairs and truck rental while it gets fixed. 

The Healing Center helps fight hunger in Cincinnati as we provide food to over 400 families each week and over 50 unique services designed to help people meet their practical, social, emotional, spiritual, and financial needs.

What do I do?
Get to know what’s in the Fundraising Packet and how to use it so that when someone asks you a question, you already know (or at least know where to look) for the answer. Confidence plays a big part in successful fundraising.

When do I fundraise?
NOW is the time! The earlier you start, the better because the deadline is May 22, 2022. Try to get 5 registrations/donations of $25 per week. Download the Fundraising Packet today.

Ask Person to Person

Keep your fundraising kit with you at all times so that you’re ready to ask anyone you encounter, whether it’s your neighbors, your family members, friends, or classmates.

The rule of thumb is that for every 10 people you ask, 9 will say “no” and 1 will say “yes” so don’t be discouraged! Just keep asking.

Post on Social Media

A good rhythm is to post once every other day on your social media channels like Instagram or Facebook and be sure to respond to anyone who comments or has questions.

In your social media posts, include a picture (of yourself is best!), and be sure to tell WHY and WHAT you are asking for, and include a link to register for the Hunger Walk. Check out this example below...
