In Kind Donations

Currently, we are not accepting in-kind donations until spring 2014. Thanks!

Thank you for your interest in making an In Kind donation on behalf of the girls and young women at GEMS.  Your personal donation or In Kind Drive will help meet critical, every day needs and your clothing donations will make a positive impact on our members’ lives and their self worth.  Your generosity is appreciated by girls and young women we serve.  Please contact Bindu Balan, Development Director, at bindu@gems-girls.org for more information on how to make an In Kind donation.  If you are interested in hosting an event, please read and fill out our Third Party Event Guidelines.

Below is a general list of approved basic necessities and appropriate attire for GEMS members.  We ask that the clothing you donate be new or gently used: in a condition in which you would still wear them and those items for our Housewarming and Basic Care Packages and Undergarments be new and unopened.  Please fill out the following In Kind Donation form and include when sending or dropping off your package(s).
