Donations of a product or service are referred to as In-Kind donations. We accept donations of items that could be used in our office, during presentations, at our emergency shelters, raffle prizes for our fundraising events, or tokens of appreciation for our crisis line volunteers and staff. We also accept services that can offset our administration costs, such as printing, advertising, copier maintenance, and shelter maintenance services. As always, your in-kind donation is tax-deductible. Please contact the office with questions.
