Fill the Month

Competition for a Great Cause

Grandview Assistance Program implemented a fun, year-round program to keep our pantry shelves full every month . We’d love for you to be a part of  the challenge!

Because need never ends, every month GAP has a theme with a corresponding need, such as canned green beans, peas and other green vegetables for March (green) and two or more businesses or organizations “compete” to bring in the most of those items. The Mayor presents the winner with a traveling trophy each month.  At the end of the year, there will be special recognition for the competitors.

We encourage you to have fun on social media by challenging other business(es) and inviting  your customers to contribute to raise the most of that month’s item to donate to GAP at the end of that month. Feel free to tag #FilltheGAP, as well as your own hashtag.
