Each month Monkeytown's Care Now initiative makes giving small donations to local food banks easy. By providing free pick-up, transportation, and delivery of donations, 100% of your gift will help the elderly, returning veterans, and families in need who rely on our local food banks.
We focus on a particular need each month. For example, February is devoted to toothpaste and toothbrushes as part of National Children's Dental Health month. Our drive this past November was devoted to toilet tissue, and together we donated 1,576 rolls. Each drive includes below-market prices for the featured items on our website. Each month we work with our suppliers and special vendors to provide the featured products at the lowest possible cost. The products featured at donation prices are not available for shipment or delivery to end consumers or businesses.
TWO WAYS TO GIVE
There are two convenient ways to give. Bring your own donation (BYOD), or purchase specially priced items by clicking the Care Now button on our website.
BYOD: Monkeytown will pick up your donation at your place of work, combine it with all the other donations we receive, and transport the bulk donation to the area food bank serving your county. While more convenient for us to pick up a donation when making a delivery, you do not need to be a customer of Monkeytown to participate. Just call 800-472-5957 and ask for a food bank pick-up.*
Website Purchase for Donation: Each month we work with our suppliers and special vendors to provide below-market prices for the month's targeted donation. Click on this month's featured items to view the highlighted items. Add the items to your cart, check-out with a credit card and your donation will be delivered to the regional food bank serving your county.
Care Now is Monkeytown's most important community service project. It defines our relationship with the communities we serve, and in turn, with all our friends and neighbors dealing with hardship. To learn more or to ask questions, contact Kurt Karr, Monkeytown's "Top Banana" at 800-472-5957 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Pick-up service is not available for national customers receiving office product delivery from third party carriers.
