Everyone and their mother is having a Lenten food sale today.
Trying to pick one from the other can be tough. And for the churches, fire companies, and other non-profits who use these sales to pad their coffers, getting attention above all the others is difficult.
They need to do something a little different.
And we think the folks at West End Fire & Rescue in Mahanoy City may be on to something.
Mahanoy City Fire Company Using Memes to Promote Lenten Food Sales
For the last two weeks, the Mahanoy City fire company has used memes to promote their Friday food sales during Lent.
It started last week with this gem featuring Spongebob:
We’re forgiving the apostrophe mistake and rewarding the ingenuity here.
And now this week, they’re stepping up their game. They posted this variation on a trending meme today to promote their pizza and haluski:
We’re not saying everyone should go out and make memes to promote their next fundraiser. But when everyone’s doing the same thing — like these Lenten food sales or BINGO nights or basket raffles — clever promotional angles can help an organization like this one in Mahanoy City stand out from the rest.
It caught our attention! We hope it leads to more sales.
