Does Enfield Food Shelf accept monetary donations as well? Team 2410, Metal Mustang Robotics, held a food drive at Greater Kansas City Regional, and we also accepted money from the out of town teams or teams who couldn’t bring food items. It went great, and we raised ~$450 or so, and ended up donating 2410 meals to our local food shelf. (It would probably be best for such a low number team like yourself to aim more for 175lbs of donation instead. :rolleyes: )

Monetary donations will be accepted but we’d much prefer items. Thank you CalTran. :slight_smile:

175lbs seems to be a very attractive goal… and number. :wink:

If you would like more information about the set up of ours, then you can take a look here. Hope it helps! It’s so amazing for someone like me to be able to help out such a team like Buzz Robotics!

Thanks again! :slight_smile:

Please spread the word. Looking to notify the attending teams ahead of time.

What a great idea!

1511’s Team Leader just sent this out to our team by e-mail blast! Hopefully when Rolling Thunder rolls into town on Thursday night, we’ll have some donations to bring into the arena on Friday morning!

Thank you Cynette :slight_smile:

Any support will be greatly appreciated.

Buzz wishes you safe travels.

Have you verified that this is allowed?

On two different occasions, our team tried similar things (food drive, charity drive), and were told by the event organizers in both cases that it was not allowed once they saw the donation boxes in our pit.

It is in fact allowed. Thank you for your concern. :slight_smile:

Buzz would like to thank all of those who participated in the food drive to benefit the Enfield Food Shelf!


The food drive was very successful and we filled both of our boxes up. Thank you to to all those who went out of their way to make this happen. :slight_smile:
