Recently a customer walked into the Cravings Popcorn store in Old Town on a mission to buy some popcorn for his church youth group activity. Cravings employee Adrienne, a Certified Tourism Ambassador by the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, is always curious about what brings customers in to the store. She knew that she could do better than just selling the customer a 1 gallon bag of popcorn. “Are you familiar with our Cravings Community Popcorn Project,” she asked. The customer was thrilled to find out that by just filling out a simple form on behalf of his non profit church group he would qualify to receive a Free Jumbo 5 gallon bag of Cravings Popcorn for the youth group event.
Since Adrienne took responsibility for the Cravings Community Popcorn Project in July of 2012, over 30 nonprofit associations have participated by receiving a Jumbo bag, gift cards for auction, or specially packaged gift boxes. The nonprofits agree to acknowledge Cravings on social media, share and tag photos, or include a Cravings logo in an event brochure or program. “One of my favorite nonprofit events that we supported this year was the Mid-Michigan Creative Alliance; they took a Jumbo bag for their Halloween event. They filled our popcorn into rubber gloves along with candy corn for the finger tips to make some creatively creepy table favors,” said Adrienne.
If you are an events planner for your nonprofit and have an event coming up this year be sure to check out the Craving’s Community Popcorn Project. You can reach Adrienne by emailing her at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop in to the Old Town Cravings store to get an application and chat with Adrienne about your event.
