There are so many ways to give to non-profits, and in-kind donations are a powerful way to help! In-kind donations might show up in the form of donated office supplies, donated food, donated office equipment, donated gift items, donated clothing, or more. In-Kind donations make it possible to help clothe people, to print papers on a laser printer, to encourage people who are broken, or assist with creating a computer lab for impoverished Deaf children. Your donations are appreciated! Whether you have an iPad you no longer need, a pile of sweaters you are hoping to donate, a box of new books which you believe can encourage people, or gift cards you hope can be used to feed the needy, we can help turn your gifts into smiles. People donate regularly, but there is ALWAYS a need for more. Please consider donating today!
