How it works


The Neighborhood Captain is provided 100 Dermer Dreams donation bags that they will distribute to the residents in their town.  The bags will include instructions to the residents and a list of items needed at the local food bank.


Residents will be asked to fill their donation bags with food and leave it on their front porch the day of the food collection.


The Neighborhood Captain, with the assistance of a parent or adult, will pick up and deliver the bags to our headquarters at the Fair Haven Firehouse, 645 River Road, Fair Haven, NJ 07704.

Upon delivery, the student will receive a certificate confirming that they ran their own Dermer Dreams food drive and can use this to fulfill the charity requirement for their university, honor society or other organization.
