Because of ongoing partnerships The Kids of 216 has established, private donations will be used to support our students and program in the following manner:
In-kind donations for the program can be made using the following document:
We also have an ongoing drive to supply basic necessities to our students, all of whom live under the national poverty level. The more we are able to provide for them to get through the school year, the more of their paychecks they earn with us will be saved for the future.
We are currently in need of: men’s socks sizes 10-16, bar soap, men’s razors, women’s razors, shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner, face wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, brushes and combs, deodorant, bandaids, twin sized sheets, blankets, and pillows. Personal hygiene items should be in their original packaging with the safety fixtures still in place.
At this time we are not collecting food items. However, we would like to provide for our students for after-hours and weekends. If you have gently used games (card games, board games, or even basketballs), please consider our in-kind donation form. This will support our efforts of keeping the kids busy and off the streets in the evenings and on the weekends.
