Select from a wide variety of items to donate
to create the perfect charity event.
One of the best ways to build morale and get people working together is to work on something bigger than the team. In this fun collection of challenges, teams earn items to be donated to a local charity. The activities get people talking and working together, and producing a tangible result to remember.
Agenda & Activities
Welcome & Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff welcome the participants and lead some fun warm-up activities to get the group fully engaged.
Event Intro (5 minutes) Our staff explain the rules for the event and distribute materials to the teams.
First Team Up (5 minutes) Participants take a moment to get to know their teammates better. Between each challenge, everyone moves to a new team, allowing for maxi- mum networking in the group. A shortened get-to-know- you segment precedes each activity.
Charity Challenges (60-120 minutes) Teams complete a series of challenges to earn the items for their gift bag. We provide a range of challenge styles so that everyone has an opportunity to shine. Final activities are based on group size, time allowed, venue, and donation item selected by client. Sample activities include:
- Hitting The Numbers Teams must successfully transport “products” using only the resources given. Some “products” have more value than others, but greater consequences for failure.
- Shape Up Teams are given sets of puzzle pieces and matching outlines. But the people assembling the puzzles must rely on instructions from their team mates.
- Amazing Teamwork Teams navigate items through a maze using a device that must be steered by the entire team, while racing against the clock.
- Copy Cat Teams need to assemble an exact copy of a model, but the people who can look at the model can’t touch the parts, relying on good communication to support their teammates.
Assemble & Inspire (10 minutes) Teams organize their gift items, place them into the gift bag or back pack, and then work together to create a short and inspiring note card to send along with their package.
Group Debrief (10 minutes) All teams come together to share their experiences and lessons learned, and talk about how to incorporate those lessons on the job.
Charity Introduction (5 minutes) We share about the charity that will be receiving the items and why that charity was selected. For larger programs, a representative from the charity may be available to accept the donation.
Wrap-Up (5 minutes) We end with a few final words and a group picture with the completed donation items.
Charity Project Options
BICYCLES / TRICYCLES / WAGONS
These easy-to-assemble and fun to donate items are always a big hit. A room full of bikes energizes any group. Teams earn a part for their bike in each challenge, and bonus accessories are available too.
Each team is given a box to fill. Teams add toys after every challenge, doing their best to donate the maximum amount. We provide a “toy store” with a wide range of items to choose from during the challenge.
Teams earn items that are needed by a local agency to support their clients. Each game yields a specific item which the teams place into their box either after each challenge, or at the end of the program.
- Food Pantries
Similar to the gift box challenge, but items are a bit more personal, and are placed into backpacks that will be delivered to people in need.
