Wish List – In Kind Donations
Click image to download
Thanks to our generous and dedicated local partners, we are limited in donation space at our Day Center and our greatest areas of need are gift card donations, non-perishable foods items, or new and unopened pillows, new and unopened fitted sheet & place sets.
We do have opportunities to get involved in Giving in other aspects such as coordinating a Fundraiser among your family, friends, and colleagues, or hosting a fundraiser at your congregation, community club, or favorite restaurant to donate directly to Family Promise.
We also accept gift cards. The most useful denominations are $25 and $50 gift cards, which we can combine with other cards to optimally help children and families. Gift cards can be used towards groceries once moved in, furnishing houses during move ins, and for transportation for those without a car.
We suggest grocery cards (Acme and ShopRite), and travel cards (SEPTA Key Cards, Lyft, and Uber).
If you would like to donate gift cards or know specific needs for our families on a rolling basis, please reach out to Blaine at email@example.com or call 302-998-2222 Ext. 105 for more details and availability!
