Donation in-kind

In March 2012, the association decided to create a donation center further emphasizing its philosophy of togetherness. This service provides systematic assistance to child welfare organizations in Attica by
providing them with as many resources as possible, so as they are able in turn to respond to all children and adolescents in need.

The economic recession has been causing an ever-increasing influx of social and economical problems and consequently an increase in the calls for assistance, to which the association felt the compelling need to respond to. Many people
affected by the crisis have not been able to cover for their everyday needs, and child welfare organizations are experiencing dramatic budget cuts and reduced funding. After identifying the needs of more than 200 Social Welfare
organizations in Attica, the association created the “I Give Because I Care” service, to help even more children in need.

The donation center is located at 14  Agiou Thoma Street, Ampelokipi, Athens and is open daily from 9:00-17:00. Goods collected:

  • Food: sugar, lentils, spaghetti, rice, oil, flour, eggs, biscuits, condensed milk, tomato sauce, honey, etc.
  • Personal hygiene: shampoo, soap, toothpaste,etc.
  • Cleaning supplies: for bathrooms, windows, floors, dish and clothing detergent, paper towels, etc.
  • School items and toys:  Footballs, volleyballs, basketballs, calculators, educational CDs, DVDs, puzzles, picture books, story books, building bricks, drawing pads, colored pencils, paints, paintbrushes, glue, cardboard etc.
