I am in Howell. I have some Google Sheets I could share with you if you send me your email.

We request a lot from local businesses and also reach out to larger regional and national companies. We also offered sponsorship opportunities last year and got $1500 which we used to buy supplies, products to help fill baskets etc.

Most of the requests are done online/email but I do still send out a lot of letters by snail mail.

I find it helps to go in with a plan. We try to have 2-3 destination auctions. Once we pick some regions I go online to request donations from hotels, restaurants, shops etc. The Convention and Visitor Bureaus are also very helpful. For these donations I customize my request to reflect the package that we are putting together.
