Hold a Drive – John 316 Mission

Hold a Drive


There are several ways for you to get involved through an in-kind item drive at your church, school, civic group or just among friends and family. Listed below are the common types of drives we need for our guests and those we serve in the community. Pick which drive works best for you, then rally your friends, co-workers, church, or other group and start collecting items.

We provide resources to you ranging from fliers to bulletin inserts, collection bins, and you can even schedule a pick up of the goods you have collected. Thank you for considering helping us in this way!

Canned Food


  • Donating non-perishable food items.
  • Donating funds to purchase food basket items (especially perishables).
  • Volunteering your time to collect and prepare food baskets.

If you’d like to host a food drive, give us a call to see what our most current needs are and we’ll provide you with some resources to assist with your drive.
