FEED THE NEED FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. WE HAVE NOT SET UP OUR FAMILY’S FUNDRAISING WEBSITE YET. IS IT TOO LATE TO DO THAT?
-NOT AT ALL! TEXT KPA TO 71777 TO GET STARTED (CHOOSE “BECOME A FUNDRAISER”). IF YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR FAMILY WEBSITE, PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO WALK YOU THROUGH IT. HERE IS A TUTORIAL VIDEO AS WELL: HTTPS://YOUTU.BE/EQU4IWJ34RW ONCE YOU HAVE SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL THAT WILL HAVE YOUR FAMILY “KEYWORD” IN IT (KPA FOLLOWED BY A NUMBER–YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY CAN TEXT THIS KEYWORD TO 71777 TO GET THE LINK TO YOUR FAMILY’S FUNDRAISING PAGE) AND THE DIRECT LINK TO YOUR FAMILY’S PAGE FOR YOU TO SHARE WITH THOSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ASK TO DONATE. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY HAVE SET UP MORE THAN ONE FUNDRAISING SITE, PLEASE LET US KNOW AND WE CAN DELETE ANY DUPLICATE SITES. ALSO, WHEN YOU RECEIVE A DONATION, YOU WILL RECEIVE A TEXT FROM 71777 AND AN EMAIL TO LET YOU KNOW THAT SOMEONE HAS DONATED!

-CHECKS FOR FEED THE NEED SHOULD BE MADE OUT TO KPA WITH “FEED THE NEED” AND YOUR FAMILY’S NAME/KEYWORD (KPA FOLLOWED BY A NUMBER) IN THE MEMO LINE. THIS MONEY CAN BE TURNED IN TO THE FRONT DESK AND WE WILL CREDIT IT TO YOUR FEED THE NEED FAMILY TOTAL. CASH NEEDS TO BE NOTATED IN THE SAME WAY.
