In-kind contributions

In-kind contributions are a way to create an atmosphere of safety and support.

Paper products, toiletries, and other items that many of us take for granted cannot be purchased as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP for lower-income women with families.

We are able to pass these and other items (see below) on to program participants in a way that gives them the gift of choice.

Office materials and services benefit our clients by freeing up resources for direct services.


For program participants

  • Herbal tea and green tea
  • Breakfast bars and snacks for our “help yourself”  kitchen counter
  • Grocery store gift cards
  • Gas station gift cards
  • Paper products, such as toilet paper, paper towels, that are not covered by food stamps

For office use

  • Postage stamps (booklets or rolls)
  • Gift cards to Staples
  • Gift cards to Target, Kroger or Kmart
  • Copier paper, white
  • Prepaid copy cards (Staples, UPS Store, Kinko’s, etc)
  • General office supplies


  • Sponsors for our agency brochure (500 are circulated every 6 weeks)
  • Sponsor for printed fund development return envelopes
  • Carpet cleaning; floor preparation and waxing

Regrettably, we are unable to accept computers more than two years old, office furniture in need of repair, or stuffed animals or other toys that cannot be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

If you have an item that you would like to gift to The Women’s Center, please call Paula at 734.973.6779.
