GiveNKind began as a local movement to help fulfill the needs of Chicagoland nonprofits by matching them with an individual with a specific donated item. Occasionally, GiveNKind received calls from businesses and distributors looking for placements for their excess goods. These calls increased over time, and GiveNKind responded. GiveNKind’s programs have evolved to solve large-scale resource issues.

Today’s GiveNKind reflects our growing commitment to helping people and the environment by partnering with businesses to manage their excess goods better.
