how do I get business to donate to my church outreach ministries, for nursing homes & homeless shelters?

Question by Rita: how do I get business to donate to my church outreach ministries, for nursing homes & homeless shelters?
I’m a leader of my church outreach ministries and I would like for our team to go to the nursing homes and homeless shelters & streets where homeless live and also drug rehab centers, to give them personal items as we minister to them.

Answer by Alli Cat
Talk to the owners and tell them about what you’re doing. I know that some organizations share the credit with businesses that sponsor them. Maybe you could ask your local newspaper to do a story about your project and mention that you need donations or set up booths at public events.

~I have never heard of a church needing to fill out any forms to accept donations. Maybe in large cities? I must admit though that I answered this question based on my own experiances and not just something I googled.~
