HOW WILL MY DONATION BE USED?
Donations help equip mothers and infants with a secure start at building a stable, supported family! We utilize both an earnings and gifting model for our donated goods. Many of the small items (clothing, blankets, etc) are gifted to our residents, affirming their value and worth of being a new mom and baby deserving of nice things. Our larger items (strollers, etc) are “earned” by submitting reports on educational books and videos, receiving points on their reports, and then cashing in those points to “buy” the item. This is a life skill which teaches price comparison, retail value, and empowers women as they buy items for their own family.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!
Pay It Forward…
When you are blessed with an abundance or when you are done using items – pass them along to individuals, families, and organizations that can make use of your items. This reduces waste and it feels good and does good to give! We get excited about families helping families!
Harvest Home is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization therefore your donations may be tax-deductible according to local tax laws. We are able to furnish you with a donation receipt at the time of your drop off.
