Collect back-to-school snacks for children in your community!

It’s this SIMPLE!

1. GATHER your community to collect nutritious back to school snacks!

2. COUNT the number of snacks you collected and take photos!

3. DONATE the snacks you collect to a local school nurse, teacher, socialworker, or food pantry to help children in your community enjoy their first days back to school.

4. DOUBLE your impact by reporting your project at during the month of August 2013. Let us know how many people were involved and how many items you collected, and Dole® will make a matching donation of up to 1,000 Dole Fruit Squish’ems!™ through Champions for Kids to help children in need!

Let's Party!
