In Kind Donations
We are currently not accepting In Kind donations as we are preparing holiday gift bags for our members.
We will resume accepting In Kind donations in January 2014.
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 Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.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.
