Redmond Physical Therapy and Hopelink, a human services nonprofit serving the Eastside, have teamed up to create a fun way to raise food donations for Hopelink’s Redmond food bank. “March Can Madness” pairs up businesses in a series of competitive food drives held each week in March. We have room in the “tournament” for 16 businesses and we’re hoping yours will be one of them!
March Can Madness is patterned after the single elimination bracket style tournament in college basketball. The first week of March, the businesses will be paired up in eight “games” in which each gathers donations of canned food. On Friday, the businesses bring their food to Hopelink for weighing. The pounds raised will be divided by how many employees in the business, making it fair for all. The eight businesses with the most food in their bracket will advance to the next week’s food drive competition, and so on until the last week in March when the two remaining businesses will compete for the “championship.”
The Redmond Reporter will publish the weekly bracket results and Hopelink will e-mail the participants weekly so everyone knows how they did and who advances in the tournament.
The timing for March Can Madness couldn’t be better as food donations always drop off after the holidays, even as hunger continues to haunt hundreds of Redmond families.
