Canning For The Kids!
Canning is going throughout the Columbia community to ask for donations. Usually, you can find us canning at grocery stores, restaurants, the downtown area, and busy intersections around Columbia. Canning is one of the best ways to help us raise money, and, at the same time, is an even better way for you to meet other people in MizzouThon that are also being FTK!
If you have any questions about our canning weekends or fundraising in general, don't hesitate to reach out to our contacts below:
Celine Yn, Director of Fundraising
Alex Waskey, Vice President of Internal Development
WHY SHOULD I DO IT?
1. Connect with others in MizzouThon!
Canning is a great way to meet other dancers and members of leadership. People can bring speakers to play music and dance, or talk to members of the community. We consider canning to be one of the best ways to bond with other people who are passionate about MizzouThon.
2. It makes it easy to meet your goal!
For every canning shift you attend, $30 of the money raised will be put towards your personal fundraising goal on DonorDrive. By participating in only four canning shifts, you can easily surpass the $100 dancer minimum!
3. We need you!
Canning is one of the most important parts of MizzouThon fundraising, and we can't do it without volunteers. Even signing up for one shift a weekend can make a huge difference!
4. Get connected with our cause!
As you saw in the video above, it's important to understand what you're canning for. When you go out and can for MizzouThon, our Leadership members will be able to tell you all of the programs MizzouThon supports at the Women's and Children's Hospital that you can tell the Columbia community and your friends about!
While days are open, you can get a group of your friends together and a member of MizzouThon Leadership to go canning on your own. Email Celine Yn, our Director of Fundraising, to set up a canning event with you and your friends or for more information!
Disclaimer: Do NOT go canning on your own. MizzouThon must obtain permits from the city to can. Canning on your own or with a group of friends on any weekend besides our designated canning weekends is illegal.
