Gifts In-Kind allow us to build our capacity, hold down our overhead costs, expand our capabilities, and ultimately, serve more people in our community. Some of our most needed items include bus tokens and items for our food pantry.
Gifts In-Kind also allow individuals and organizations to donate excess inventory or specialized products to assist those with an immediate need, while knowing that their contributions are going towards a good cause. Many people enjoy giving physical items, since they are able to see the tangible benefit of their contribution. Additionally, we are always happy to set up tours at any of our program sites, which allow people to see the work of The Salvation Army first-hand – and further visualize the value of their donations.
All gifts are distributed through our social service programs, Pathway of Hope program, or to our clients via special events. In fact, many organizations choose to partner with us through special events and provide the physical goods necessary – such as food for a Thanksgiving holiday meal – to not only make the event successful, but to expand the number of people served.
With your In-Kind gifts, we can provide a new level of support to those in need throughout our community!
