Send Your 2017 Feed Senior Now® Food Drive Results for our Year-End Review!

Comfort Keepers® franchises across the U.S. have been busy throughout 2017 with local Feed Seniors Now® food drives. CKFI would like to hear about your food drive successes. Update your food drive results here.

We will use that information to create cumulative results for network-wide Feed Seniors Now events. We will also share those results with the system, so everyone can see the difference Comfort Keepers has made for seniors in 2017. Please send photos and any PR your events received to JoniMagnusRamsey@ComfortKeepers.com.

Planning for next year's campaign?

We're months away from 2018's Feed Seniors Now campaign, but now is as good a time as any to begin thinking about your future food drive plans! For starters, check out the Feed Seniors Now food drive planning timeline. Then head to CK Brand > Programs > Feed Seniors Now to check out branded collateral such as print ads, posters, and more!
