Consider donating your coolers and ice packs to Friendship Trays to help keep our meals fresh and safe. Here’s a few guidelines to keep in mind.
Our trays are a little bigger than the size of a piece of paper folded in half: 8.5″ by 6.25″. A recipient receives two trays per delivery and the trays are 1.5″ tall (so, two trays would be 3″ tall–about the size of a six-pack.) Keep this in mind when donating coolers. They should be able to hold two trays plus a small ice pack. The Honeybaked Ham cooler shown above is a perfect size.
We need ice packs, too. Smaller ice packs are preferable. The larger packs tend to be too heavy and can weigh down an already full bag of trays.
