At first there were a lot of donations but then they started to slow down so we decided to offer an incentive for students to donate. We created a competition so that the team with the highest number of items donated would receive a prize (which was candy!).
When we delivered the donations to the shelter, it was difficult to find it because there was no sign - the shelter wants to respect the privacy of its clients. But once we found it, the staff person who received us was most appreciative.
