Drives to Make a Difference at Summer Camp 2016
Conscious Alliance Canned Food Drive
Daily | 10am-5pm | Conscious Alliance Booth just southwest of Soulshine
We are happy to announce we will be teaming up with Summer Camp Music Festival to host an ‘Art That Feeds’ Food Drive. All food donations will benefit the East Peoria Area Food Bank in Peoria, Illinois.
One of our very talented artists will create a very special and limited edition Summer Camp event poster made by John Warner, which will be FREE to the first patrons who donate 20 non-perishable food items or a suggested monetary donation! Food donations will be collected at the Conscious Alliance ‘Art That Feeds’ Gallery, which will be depicted on the Summer Camp Festival guide and map.
Conscious Alliance always encourages food donations to be low-sodium and health oriented products. ORGANIC food donations are especially encouraged. RAMEN NOODLES will NOT be accepted for the free poster.
Thank you for your continued support in feeding the hungry everywhere music plays!

We ask that everything be as sorted as possible. After that we will package them all up and send them off to TerraCycle sponsored by Sante Fe Natural Tobacco where they will be weighed and recycled into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic pallets, and any remaining tobacco will be re-worked into tobacco composting.
CSU Global Medical Brigades Hygiene Pack Drive
Daily | 10am-5pm | Global Medical Brigades Booth just southwest of Soulshine
Soap, Shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, floss, condoms etc. Please bring small sample sizes of daily hygiene essentials. The majority of disease and illness is preventable through basic, daily hygienic practices. Global Medical Brigades will personally deliver these supplies on a medical mission trip to Nicaragua; 85% of Nicaraguans struggle to live on more than $1 daily. Communities are limited in their access to basic health services because of poor road infrastructure, also making transportation and trade extremely difficult. Global Medical Brigades will provide a free medical clinic along with education on sustainability and preventative medical practices. Our goal is to educate and develop clinics that the residents will be able to maintain in their own community. Thank you for all the support!
Glow Stick Drive
Daily | 10am-5pm | SOUL Corner inside Soulshine
We don’t want you to buy NEW glow sticks, but we sure want you to bring by those old used dirty glow sticks you see all over the ground at Summer Camp to the SOUL Corner. These glow sticks are not possible to recycle and therefore just continue to waste space in a landfill. We’ll be showcasing the waste at Soulshine for our Summer Camp patrons to get a view of the amount of unrecyclable waste created with just one item. By bringing the used, dirty glow sticks in to Soulshine, you’ll get a check on the Treasure Hunt!
