Why are Cash and Gift Card Donations So Important To St. Joe’s Kids?
St. Joe’s kids have unique sensitivities and personalities. The monetary and gift card donations allow St. Joe’s staff and foster parents to get items throughout the year that fit both the children’s sizes and preferences. It also gives the donor the opportunity to provide not only needed items but experiences as well. St. Joe’s staff and families have gotten very creative in how they keep the children engaged throughout the pandemic and being able to purchase a meal from a local restaurant or transforming their space into a mini-movie theater has created many special moments for our children. Those kinds of memories stay with our children for the rest of their lives and are incredibly meaningful to them.
Can I Make a Gift In-Person?
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all in-person donations must be pre-approved by a St. Joe’s Representative. Any item donations brought to St. Joe’s that have not been approved IN ADVANCE will be redirected to another local charity partner.
