#GivingTuesday - In-Kind Goods Drive
The giving season is upon us and this #GivingTuesday giveNkind is working with Gratitude Generation to host a special drive. GiveNkind is a nonprofit serving other nonprofits by helping them find the items they need to extend their reach in the community. Nonprofit wish lists are filled through giveNkind's website, corporate bulk donations, and through drives of gently used items. With such diverse nonprofit partners with such a wide variety of needs, giveNkind serves as the nonprofit to collect, sort, and place repurposed goods with nonprofits that need them the most. We are calling this drive Fill-A-Need.
The Fill-A-Need drive running from Nov 26 - Dec 1 is collecting household goods such as pots, pans, bake ware, dishes, men, women, and children's clothing, shoes, coats, books, and small appliances. Please make sure items are not soiled or broken. Items can be placed in the donation box at your office. Have a lot of items to donate? We are proud to be opening our first sorting location at CubeSmart Storage in Riverwoods! We have set donation drop dates at the new facility as well as drop boxes at various sites. See our list of locations below:
Nov 26 - Dec 1 - Dance Center North Studio, Libertyville
Nov 26 - Nov 30 - Banner Preschool, Northfield
Nov 26 - Nov 30 - Coldwell Banker, Deerfield
Nov 27 - 6pm - 8pm - CubeSmart Storage, Riverwoods
Dec 1 - 9am - noon - CubeSmart Storage, Riverwoods
With over 40+ nonprofit partners in the Chicagoland area, giveNkind collects a variety of new and gently used goods. In the hands of the right nonprofit, unused goods in your home in good condition can fill an essential need, provide relief, and let those in need know they are cared for.
Thank you for your help in supporting nonprofits across Chicago. To further support giveNkind this season, we are accepting monetary donations that will help keep our efforts running. Donations will cover the cost of our sorting facility, shipments of goods to nonprofits, and our technical platform for nonprofits and donors. For $250, our donation facility will be covered for a month, $100 will support our servers for a month, and $68 ships a lot of donations anywhere in the country. Donation can be accepted here. If you would like to get involved with giveNkind volunteering sorting items and making deliveries or if you have questions about our drive or organization, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847-802-8977.
