Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive

A Library Program Proposal

By Emily Mulvey


Program details

Program Details

  • Teens will be responsible for collecting canned goods & bringing them to the library

  • The organization is up to them- classrooms, Girl/Boy Scout Troops, youth groups and individuals are welcome to participate on their own terms

  • The library will track progress by “filling” a poster board can, with an ultimate goal of 5,000 cans

Rationale intended outcomes

Rationale & Intended Outcomes

Personal Teen Growth

Community Benefit

Local food shelter receives donations of food and money

Less fortunate members of community can enjoy Thanksgiving

Library receives publicity

New members of the community may become more aware of the library as a vital part of the town

This may increase patronage as well as general good-will in the community

  • Benefits of volunteering according to Porritt, 1995:

    • “shared sense of accomplishment and satisfaction from giving back to the community”

    • “discuss service and community issues and get to know each other better”

    • “helps teenagers to relate to other generations”

    • Builds self-confidence, promotes civic responsibility, improves communication, and relieves isolation
