An in-kind donation refers to a gift given to Friends LA in the form of goods or services instead of money. We know what you're thinking: how can you support Friends LA through an in-kind gift?
Host a Drive
A kid needs you. Many kids, in fact. A big way you can help them is by hosting an in-kind donation drive! We encourage you to help in a unique way by collecting essentials and other small gifts. Hosting a drive is an excellent way to raise awareness about the challenges Friends LA is working to disrupt. It can also be done year round. Consider collecting:
- School Supplies (K-5th grade)
- Toiletries and Hygiene (from baby to adult)
- Household cleaning and laundry products
- Food and transportation gift cards
- Holiday items such as gift cards or new toys
Have something you can’t use that could benefit Friends LA?
Consider donating it! We accept a host of items that are new or like-new condition. From books to tickets — if we can use it, we may accept it. However, we do NOT accept vehicle donations.
Suggested Items You Can Donate:
Concert/play/festival/sporting event/movie/airplane tickets
Arts & Craft supplies
Computer/video games and systems
Office supplies & furniture
Wines & Spirits
... and more!
Donating your time, service, or expertise allows us to provide additional resources to vulnerable children and families. Therefore, we can always use professional support pertaining to: legal assistance, photography or videography work, graphic design, printing for communication materials, marketing, advertising, research, website maintenance, and more.
Contact us or call 213.378.0704 if you have a service you’d like to donate in-kind! The tangible expenses of providing your pro bono service can be at least partially deducted on business tax returns.
