In-Kind Donations

WE BELIEVE EVERY SERVICE AND SKILL IS VALUABLE. Some people aren’t able to donate money, but can often donate goods, skills, or services. Whether it’s used garden tools or a day of building skills for a fence project, it frees up funds for other uses and makes our dollars go farther to help people in need. We have uses for just about anything!

Here are some ideas:

  - work in our gardens

  - share use of a truck or trailer

  - office products (paper, print cartridges, old     printers or computers, etc.)

  - donate your skills in bookkeeping, web design, writing, fundraising, event planning, social media, construction, food preparation and preserving, and more
