How is the Winner Determined?
Since teams of all sizes are welcome, the winner is determined by the average number of items collected, per person. Say, hypothetically, there are only two teams—Team A and Team B.  Despite the headcount disparity, both managed to collect the same number of Most Needed items:

     TEAM A
     25 participants
     250 items collected, average: 10 items per person

     TEAM B
     2 participants
     250 items collected, average: 125 items per person

     Team B wins...as they have the highest average, per person.
