Gifts in kind help us enormously as we continue to maintain a quality environment. Such gifts include real estate, furniture, vehicles, and all manner of material goods. With a big family like ours (110 children at a time), material goods are in constant demand, and we simply could not afford to replace the large ones like appliances and vehicles on a continual basis.
Like every active family, we wear things out. We have a system for utilizing all such gifts for maximum benefit. First, we sort donations to see what can be used at one of our campuses. After we’ve furnished our residences, outfitted and supplied the children, we offer remaining items for sale at one of our two Thrift Shops. Either way, our children reap the benefit.
We send a truck out into the Kerr County area each Thursday to pick up items from donors. So call us to schedule a pick-up at 367-2131, or bring items to any of the three campuses from 8 to 5, Monday through Friday.
Our current “most-needed” list includes:
- Furniture – any quality items, including chests, dressers, tables, shelves, sofas, chairs, lamps, etc.
- Appliances – like-new appliances, large and small.
- Housewares – glasses, dishes, pots, pans, silverware.
- Linens – towels, sheets, pillows, comforters.
- Office & School Equipment – desks, chairs, tables, etc.
- Pickup Truck – maintenance utility truck.
- 12-passenger van – we drive 18 of these at a time.
- Recreation – baseball gloves, bats, sports balls, saddles, bicycles and helmets, televisions, games.
- Tools – of all kinds
- Anything re-sellable
Especially for those in Central Texas, close enough to bring material gifts to our campuses or thrift stores, please remember us when you clean out your storage areas or decide at any time to be rid of items, large or small, that are still usable.
