Fun and Exciting
Employee Campaign Event Ideas
Themed Food Day
Employees cook their favorite dishes and pay to eat – with proceeds going to United Way. Have a contest for the ‘Best Dish.’ Get a trophy at the Dollar Store and give the trophy to the winner.
Chili or Soup Cook-Off
International/Ethnic Food Day
Side Dish Day
Add fun to campaign week by hosting a theme lunch such as 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s, holiday themes, TV shows, sports, etc.
Homemade or store bought items are brought in such as: cookies, pies, muffins, bars, cupcakes, fudge, and candy. Arrange baked items on a table to be seen and purchased throughout the day.
Christmas Cookie Sale
Call bakeries for cookie bids or make your own. Determine the cost and selling price. Have sign-up sheet to take preorders.
Participating employees bring a hot-dish, appetizer, salad, side, dessert, etc. to be shared. Paper products are also needed for this event. Employees pay to fill their plate and sample everything in the room.
Root Beer Float Sales
Seek donations or purchase root beer and vanilla ice cream. This popular event works well during lunch and breaks in the summertime. Remember a freezer will be needed to store the ice cream if the event is held all day.
Snack & Dessert Cart
Employees donate items; several carts travel around the building in the morning and afternoon and offer treats at a minimal cost. A new twist on the traditional bake sale.
Top Managers Cook for Employees
Have top managers cook a special breakfast for all donors. Another way to demonstrate employee appreciation.
