Thanksgiving is a time to gather with loved ones and take time to appreciate all of our blessings - typically with a good meal as a plus! It can take a lot of time and effort to organize your holiday events. After all, you’re busy managing details such as where to meet, what everyone should bring, and how to communicate with guests.
Online sign ups are perfect for:
Start by creating a sign up that reflects your event. You can customize the layout of your sign up or browse design options to choose a Thanksgiving theme. Enter slots for specific food dishes or require the comment field on the sign up so that people can list their specific dish for others to see.
Hosting a food drive or volunteer event? Be sure to list out your needed items as slots. This is a great way to ensure you have an even distribution of supplies.
Spread the word about your event to ensure you have a good turnout - you’ll get the food items you need and have plenty of help. You can promote your sign up in many ways. You can email the sign ups to your family, but if you’re looking for volunteers to serve meals or hosting a food drive, you might want to consider sharing the link on social platforms or in a newsletter.
Holidays can put a lot of pressure on people in social situations, so ease into your gathering with these icebreakers or Thanksgiving questions. This can even be helpful for making small talk with other volunteers or the guests you are serving. For a traditional Thanksgiving, start your event off with a few games that are great for the whole family!
This Thanksgiving season, plan to gather and give back with those around you. By simplifying organization with online sign ups, you’ll have more time to spread joy and reflect on all that you are thankful for this season.
