Hey BHW, A partner and I are going to have some business ventures starting up locally soon. We were trying to think about ways that would solidify us better in the community BEFORE starting these ventures - in hopes that a bigger name in the community would allow us a more successful business or investors. We both love to help the community so wanted to do a clothing/food drive for the local homeless and under privileged. My question is - How do we go about this? Are there forms we need? Can I pull off planning and spreading word and launching this event by New Years? (Theme of helping give back to the community for New Years Resolution maybe will draw more donators in). I have an idea of a location already - what should I offer the business owner in exchange for using some of their unoccupied building? Driving more business to their clothing store since its right next door? Thanks!
