Donations Committee Involvement
- Dine & Donates
IU Timmy hosts monthly dine and donates that raise money to purchase the supplies required for our service trips. These dine and donates are held at popular Bloomington restaurants, such as Chipotle and Noodles & Co. During the evening of a dine and donate, a portion of each purchase at the restaurant is donated to IU Timmy. All the customer has to do is mention that they are placing their order on behalf of Timmy Global Health.
- Donation Drives
With the help of generous hosts, IU Timmy is able to hold donations drives at local Bloomington grocery stores. Our members stand outside of these stores, such as Kroger or Bloomingfoods, pass out lists of needed supplies to shoppers, and ask them if they would be willing to purchase a small item to help our cause. Soon, IU Timmy will also have permanent donation drive crates within the grocery stores, where customers can leave supplies any time they pick up an item on our list.
In 2016, IU Timmy began a new donations event called Pie-a-Professor. This event was highly successful in its first year. Students within large lecture classes donate money and vitamins to IU Timmy, and the class that provides the highest number of donations wins the competition. As the name suggests, the highest student donor in the winning class is given the opportunity to pie their professor in the face. Last year's (unfortunate) winner was Professor Cooley.
