Christmas Bag Collection
Many of the men and women that come to our treatment centers arrive with few or no personal belongings. During this holiday season, please help encourage them who are committed to changing their life through faith in Jesus Christ and inspiring them on their journey of recovery by helping with our Christmas Bag collection.
It’s simple. When you donate to our Christmas Bag collection, you are providing an opportunity for patients and students to have clothing, hygiene and toiletry supplies so they feel comfortable through their stay at our treatment centers.
Your impact doesn’t end there—when you donate to our Christmas Bag collection, you are helping provide a person the life-saving opportunity to start a journey of hope and healing. This creates a new gateway to transformative action that will help build a healthier, more vibrant community.
You may donate new clothing (sizes MD to 5XL) such as: socks, underwear/boxers, undershirts, t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, hoodies (with and without zippers), pants/slacks, dress shirts, jeans, sweaters, sweatshirts, winter jackets, hats and suits/formal wear.
HYGIENE & TOILETRY ITEMS
You may also donate new hygiene and toiletry supplies such as: toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs/hair brushes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, shaving cream, aftershave lotion, feminine care products, lotions, Kleenex & tissues, wipes, electric shavers, razors, cotton balls and soap.
We are also collecting school supplies such as: notebooks, notebook paper, pens, pencils, erasers, envelopes, and note cards/index cards.
When you drop off your donations for our Christmas Bag collection, you’ll receive a receipt from us. Hang on to this receipt. At the end of the year, if you itemize deductions on your taxes, you can claim a tax deduction for clothing, supplies and items that are in good condition.
Donate Retail Inventory
When your business donates excess retail merchandise or hygiene supplies to our Christmas Bag, you not only benefit through a tax-deductible donation (as determined by current tax law), you are also providing items that are well-needed at our program.
From customer returns and close outs, we are ready to engage with your business to give new items you no longer need a new life through our Christmas Bag collection.
