Mission Statement

Gift In Kind Center managed by the United Way of the Piedmont hopes to distribute $12 million of donated product to non-profit organizations within the surrounding area. The United Way of the Piedmont is committed to supporting the needs of our community through the critical work performed by non-profit organizations who are able to take advantage of this Gift In Kind Center, for it will act as a liaison between local and national donors and participating agencies. Our community will greatly benefit from this wonderful opportunity and make a tremendous impact on the people who live here.

Description

On a daily basis, deliveries from Exel arrive to the Gift In Kind Center operated by the United Way of the Piedmont. A combination of paid staff and volunteers unload and sort the various products that come in off the truck. The products available at the Gift In Kind Center are almost always unused. Perhaps they arrived at a retail outlet with the label printed backwards or the packaging was damaged during delivery. Sometimes manufacturers change logos and pull usable product from the shelves. Instead of disposing of these items, companies may choose to donate them to a center like ours, therefore becoming extremely valuable to agencies serving the needs of our region!
