HOLD YOUR OWN PRODUCT DRIVE
Most of our product donations come in large quantities from retailers and manufacturers, but we also welcome donations from product drives held by people just like you. A feeling of community can come from personally helping others, and holding a drive to collect new product is an excellent way to achieve this. If you would like to spearhead a product drive among friends, co-workers or for a community service project, we would be happy to place your donated products into the hands of people who need them most.
PLEASE READ THIS VERY IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE GOING FORWARD
Delivering Good DOES NOT ACCEPT DONATIONS OF ANY USED PRODUCTS. We were founded with the idea of giving only new merchandise. Sending children and families in distress new products lifts their spirits, gives them hope that their lives could return to normal and lets them know that someone cared enough to give them something new and valuable. If you have gently used but still useful products, please contact The Salvation Army or Goodwill Industries.
PICK A THEME, OR TYPE OF EVENT
Celebrate a birthday, wedding, holiday, or other milestone by asking your guests to donate a product to Delivering Goodinstead of a gift. We can help provide you with the wording for a note that lets them know their gifts will help families in need. “Giving” parties are becoming more and more popular among all age groups, and with a network of partner agencies that work with homelessness, poverty, literacy, military families, illness and so much more, we can connect you with a cause that’s near and dear to your heart.
FOR DISASTER RECOVERY, COLLECT BASIC NECESSITIES
Think about the day to day items easily taken for granted but missed when gone: shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and other personal hygiene items; tissues, baby wipes, diapers, combs, and first aid kits. Batteries are also useful. The items must be brand new and small sized or packaged for individual use.
FOR DAILY NEEDS, COLLECT ESSENTIALS
The most asked for items year round fall into the apparel category: Socks, undergarments, tee/sweat shirts (all sizes), or seasonal items. Baby essentials, such as wipes, diapers and clothing; books, toys, and any arts/crafts or educational items are also welcome. Again, all of the items must be brand new.
DOCUMENT YOUR DRIVE
Take pictures, tell us the story behind the product drive, and we’ll include you in our social media channels!
BOX THE ITEMS SO THAT THEY ARE EASILY SHIPPED
Once you’ve completed the collection, please contact Product@Delivering-Good.org with the number and approximate weight of the boxes. She will send you pre-paid UPS labels for shipping your items to one of the community partners in the Delivering Good network.
