CLIENT: First National Bank and Daily Knead (a regionally franchised bagel shop)
PURPOSE: Volunteer Appreciation Gift
First National Bank and Daily Knead, a regionally franchised bagel shop, partnered together over 12 separate months to prepare more than 500 bagged breakfasts which were distributed to soup kitchens, shelters, and missions throughout the counties in each location they serve.
Volunteers assemble, pack, and deliver the meals each month. The organizations wanted a collection of products they could hand out to volunteers as a thank you and make it easier to hand out meals.
Volunteers are required to record names and quantities of distributed meals, making it a priority to have customized pens available throughout the events. A pen made with recycled wheat was chosen because of the association with bagels and in support of their environmental initiatives.
Reusable drinkware highlighting “I helped knead out hunger” was given as a small keepsake after the event.
Sturdy, eco-friendly bags were supplied for quick and easy drop-off for meals, and custom re-usable metal straws were provided to help support the reduction of waste and trash in their communities.
Promotional products are a brilliant way to spread a message rapidly. Not only do they provide a platform for your mission statement to be printed, but they can also align with your organization's goals, depending on the product. For example, if you're an environmentally conscious nonprofit organization, promotional products made from recycled parts can help raise awareness about your cause and your brand. Nonprofits can also use these items as gifts for supporters and donors or as incentives for volunteers to show appreciation. Utilizing promotional products within nonprofit marketing is a sure way to bring knowledge to your organization and your cause effectively that speaks volumes.
