What we do:

Start a Donate Don't Dump Chapter:        

                          Here's an easy cheat sheet to help you get started

  • Find a common place of interest to start your club/chapter (school, church, etc.)
  • It's recommended starting your chapter with a few club members on board with you
  • Talk to an adviser to work out a regular meeting place and time (classroom, conference center, etc.) 
  • Chapters must meet at least once a month and complete quarterly activities to stay active
  • Chapter activities include social media, education, advocacy, volunteering at food banks, food drives, coin drives, etc 
  • If you are starting a school club, talk to an ASB adviser or school administrator to find out your individual school's process
  • Once you have your location and a few chapter members, message us here at Donate Don't Dump.  An intern will be assigned to help you out
  • Have all chapter members "like" Donate Don't Dump on Facebook and create a status promoting others to join your new chapter and to check out Facebook.com/DonateDontDump
  • Keep us updated on Facebook and Twitter
There are over 20 Donate Don't Dump Chapters in 4 US States, 
at high, middle & elementary schools, universities, churches, youth groups, sports teams and other youth organizations.
