In-Kind Donations

Goods and Services

Making an in-kind donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County is a great way for you to contribute to the organization and help us reduce costs.

In-kind donations are new items and/or services that may include anything from unused children's books or sporting goods for our Club to pro-bono services such as legal work, marketing/communications, management consulting, and fundraising support.

The Boys & Girls Club appreciates donated services and supplies that support our programs such as gift certificates, school supplies, and holiday gifts. We also are able to receive some food and beverages from restaurants and vendors for use in our programs and at various events throughout the year.

The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange gladly accepts donations of used bicycles.

While we appreciate all donation offers, the Boys & Girls Club is currently unable to accept the following items: used clothing, used school supplies, office furniture, gym equipment (treadmill, weight machines) or recreational equipment (pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, air hockey table or board games).

To offer your goods or services, please contact Kelly Watts, 609-392-3191, ext 127.
