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 (12 oz. size) are preferable. The larger packs tend to be too heavy and can weigh down an already full bag of trays.
