In-kind or non-monetary contributions are items, products, or services that are provided free of charge to LAYN. These donations are valuable resources that we then distribute to our youth. In keeping with our mission of treating all clients with respect and dignity, we ask that all clothing donations be brand new goods. Hosting a donation drive at your office or organization, school, place of worship or other community group settings is a great way to involve your employees or community members in a meaningful cause, promote team spirit, and demonstrate your organization's commitment to the community.

Below is a list of items that we can always use. Donated items should be dropped off at our offices, as we do not have a pick-up service.

LAYN development staff can assist with a kit of information to get you started with your drive. If you have questions, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
