In Kind Donations
Thank you for your interest in making an In-Kind donation on behalf of the girls and young women at GEMS. Your donation will help meet critical, every day needs and your gently used 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 Amanda Gagne, Development Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to make an In-Kind donation.
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 that household, basic care, and undergarment donations be new and unopened. Please fill out the following In-Kind Donation Form and include when sending or dropping off your package(s).
