1. Placing a donation box in our apartments/colleges/workplaces (If it needs lots of approvals, make it informal).
2. Talking to any retail/food outlets in our locality and see if donation boxes can be placed.
3. If someone wishes to donate money, we accept the money and buy the stuff on their behalf.
