About Delivering Good (formerly K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers):

Delivering Good, Inc. is the charity of choice for new product donations made by hundreds of companies in the fashion, home and children’s industries. Donating new merchandise provides these companies with a simple and effective way to help people in need. Founded over 30 years ago, Delivering Good is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that unites retailers, manufacturers, foundations and individuals to support people affected by poverty and tragedy nationally and abroad.

Delivering Good was created from the 2014 merger of Kids in Distressed Situations and Fashion Delivers.
