Team Captain Reminders

  • Get your staff, your students, your parents, your parent groups, and your clubs involved.
  • Recognition for the elementary, middle and high schools with the highest amount of donations.
  • An adult walker needs to raise at least $30 and a student/child $10, in order to receive an LPS BackPack Extra Mile t-shirt.
  • Use the LPS BackPack Extra Mile T-Shirt Order form to collect the names of the walkers on your team. The t-shirts sizes are: youth 6-8 (small), youth 10-12 (medium), youth 14-16 (large), youth 18-20 (x-large), adult small, adult medium, adult large, adult x-large, adult 2x-large, adult 3x-large, adult 4x-large and adult 5-x large. T-shirts will be red.
  • In order to receive an LPS t-shirt, each person, family or organization must have their own walker sponsor form.
  • Walkers should feel free to wear backpack t-shirts from previous years.
  • Encourage walkers to convert any coin and cash collected to checks. Checks should be made payable to: Food Bank of Lincoln. New this year will be online donations through the Food Bank’s website.
  • Walkers should be collecting donations as they are pledged—don’t have them wait until the last minute. ALL money MUST be collected when the forms are turned back in to you.
  • For locations with student walkers, it is highly recommended that their donations of $10 or more are turned in by the t-shirt deadline.
  • The donations should be a flat amount, not so much per mile walked. The donations are collected in advance of the walk.
  • Each walker, family or organization must have a walker sponsor form.
