Food Insecurity,Homelessness, Human Trafficking, Health Disparities & IDEA (Inclusiveness, Diversity, Equity, Access)

alternatively may prepare a community service drive project.

It should be an effort to connect a business, workplace, club, association, or neighborhood with a non-profit agency (a cause) of social welfare that is fighting to reduce the impact of one or more of the five global social issues taught in the course. I like to recommend the Miami Rescue Mission and Broward Outreach Centers as the recipient charity but you may choose a different cause if you prefer; perhaps there is another charity closer to your home or that you already know and would prefer to support.

See examples below from the Miami Rescue Mission’s website on food, clothing or hygiene-products drives, however other ideas may be proposed as well.

Your alternative service-learning assignment is to develop a plan of action for your drive, prepare the promotional and collection bin materials, execute the drive, and deliver the proceeds to the designated charity. This is something you can do from home with friends and neighbors, or at your place work, place of worship, a club or another location.

Here are the steps you should follow for your project:

  • Determine the cause to be supported (Miami Rescue Mission, Broward Outreach Center, FIU Student Food Pantries, or any other).
  • Decide what will be the host organization or group: it could be a school, a place of worship, a business you work at, a fraternity/sorority/club you belong to, your apartment building or condo, or a large Friends & Family group.
  • What are your goals? Determine the target number or weight of food items, clothing items, etc. you hope to collect.
  • Will you engage other people in the organization or group in your drive? Who? What will be their roles?
  • Determine when you want your campaign to begin and end? For example, drives at work might be done from Monday to Friday to allow colleagues to notice the boxes and remember to bring something in the next day. A place of worship might be announced one weekend ahead of time for people to be aware and bring donations in the next.
  • Create a collection box, decorate it and include at least one photograph of that box in your assignment and post it on the class Facebook page.
  • Where will you place the collection box(es) for maximum exposure and convenience?
  • How will you transport the donations you collect to the shelter or food bank you have decided to support?
  • How will you announce or advertise your drive? There are many ways that you can spread the word about
    your drive to potential participants such as creating an attractive poster for printing, blogs, social media and newsletters. You can hang printed posters around your office or building and place them on or near the collection boxes. You will need to to include these images in your assignment submission.
  • You could host a kick-off event to build excitement about your food, clothing or hygiene drive.
  • Consider making a contest out of it. See my example below from the Chaplin School campaign I organized Fall Semester.
  • Distribute flyers in employee mailboxes or send them home with students.
  • Include details about the drive and the cause in your group’s newsletter.
  • Send email or social media reminders to participants the day the drive begins
  • Take photos throughout your drive of items collected and post them to social media
  • Post progress updates throughout (see my thermometer example below).
  • Create graphics using free sites like
  • Create a Facebook event and share it with your friends
  • Tag the cause in your posts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, etc.
  • Use hashtags like #endhunger, #fighthunger, #givehope, etc.

Submit a PowerPoint presentation that creatively addresses the bullet points listed above and includes your created poster graphics, a photo of the collection box(es), email and social media messaging. Create a shorter version of the same as a post on our class’ Facebook page.
