In-Kind Donations

In-kind or non-monetary contributions are items, products, or services that are provided free of charge to The People Concern. These donations are valuable resources that we then distribute to the most vulnerable in our community. In keeping with our mission of treating all program participants with respect and dignity, we ask that all donations should be clean and, if used, in good condition.

Please see below for our current list of the most in demand items and donation criteria.
