How To Get Started


Key Drive Planning



  • Decide dates for the key drive (we recommend 2 weeks anytime during the year)
  • Delegate responsibilities (promoting, distributing collection boxes, and organizing incentives)
  • Identify sites for collection bins Decide what incentives, if any, you are going to use (see key "KEY DRIVE TIPS" for ideas)


  • Prepare letter for students to take home announcing the key drive and requesting key donations
  • Promote in local newspaper (we will work with you and send out a press release)
  • We will provide bins for your collection sites and have students decorate them
  • Have students make posters and display them throughout the building and at local businesses
