SIGN ME UP!
We deliver your green bag to your home or office!
HOW IT WORKS
- Sign up for a FREE cool green bag. We will deliver a bag to your home. On each bag is a list of items local food banks need the most, and a list of dates.
- Do your family grocery shopping – every time you shop simply buy 1 or 2 extra items to donate. Here is a list of our Most Needed Items. Don’t know what to buy? No problem. We have a list of most needed items from the food pantry, or just buy a duplicate of what your family likes. Click the button above to see the items our partners need the most. Many donors find a Buy One Get One Free deal, so they can buy one for their family and donate the other. With this model, giving to their neighbors is completely free!
- On the designated Saturday of every other month – 6 times a year – one of our super fabulous volunteer drivers comes to your house, picks up your bag for you and leaves an empty green bag in its place. Your full bag of food is then delivered directly a partner pantry in Greensboro or High Point. You have just helped a neighbor! It is that simple!
Volunteer Drivers make A Simple Gesture possible. Drivers are asked to pick up about 20 bags in or near their neighborhood every other month and deliver the food to an assigned food pantry.
One person at your office is the Simple Gesture Champion. He or she educates co-workers about A Simple Gesture, distributes bags, and reminds everyone to bring their bag back on the designated day.
A Simple Gesture – Greensboro owes it’s growth to our wonderful faith partners. All we ask churches to do is tell your congregations about us, and have them sign up! We provide all the tools you need for bulletins, newsletters, and social media! It’s that easy!
Show Greensboro your business cares. Whether you have three employees or 3,000 our Corporate Kindness Program can help employees give back to their communities. A Simple Gesture makes it easy.
