REQUESTED ITEMS FOR JULY 2018

It's Back to School Time!

Before long, our kiddos will be gearing up for another new school year. With your help, they'll be prepared for another year of learning and growth. Click below to see the unique needs of our back-to-school drive.

IMPORTANT: In-kind donations refer to brand new items only. Gently-used items can be donated to the Genesis Benefit Store.

  • BASKETBALLS, SOCCER BALLS & RESPECTIVE AIR PUMPS
    Our residential shelter has its own sport court and with summer ramping up, our kiddos could use some new equipment!
  • SUITCASES OR DUFFLE BAGS
    These can be new or gently used; we offer these to shelter clients when they leave so they don’t have to carry out their belongings in trash bags
  • TOILET PAPER
    Toilet paper may not be the most glamorous of gifts, but it is absolutely crucial to our day-to-day operations.
  • PAPER TOWELS
    From quick cleanups to fun activities with our kiddos, paper towels are essential and we go through them frequently.
  • LAUNDRY PODS
    Laundry machines are always available for our clients onsite, and detergent is distributed to residents as needed. Laundry pods are strongly preferred, as they are much easier to distribute than powder or liquid.
  • SNACKS
    Each client consumes an average of two snacks a day, equaling thousands of snacks each year! By providing snacks, you ensure more of our budget can go to healthy meals made up of fresh produce and organic products. Suggested snacks include:

    • Snack bars
    • Animal crackers
    • Fruit chews
    • Goldfish
    • Jello
    • Microwaveable cups of macaroni and cheese
    • Cans of non-condensed soup
    • Due to allergic reactions, please avoid nuts of any kind
  • STANDARD SIZE PILLOWS
  • BOTTLED WATER
  • BLANKETS OR THROWS
    A soft blanket goes a long way in providing warmth and comfort. We are asking for blankets for babies, children and adults.
