Would you like to donate an item to NAMI rather than just giving cash? No problem! We are always looking for items to help us with general operations. Please keep in mind that in-kind donations also qualify as tax deductions.
Here are some ideas to consider:
1-A minivan or SUV that will help us transport The Bluebirds and Connection group participants. We’ like to provide transportation for 4-10 members to activities, so please consider donating one of your vehicles.
2-Airline miles or hotel points. We like connecting with other NAMI affiliates at national conferences, and also attend trainings once a year. We have been prevented from doing so in the past because it is expensive to send our members to trainings.
3-Gift certificates from Albertson’s, Atkinsons’, or any food vendors are always needed, and help to provide snacks and materials for our support groups.
4-Paper!!! We go through a lot of paper. Thanks to the Wood River Women’s Foundation for providing us a state of the art copy machine. We now do all of our printing in-house. Cases of white 8 1/2 x 11, 11 x 17, or 11 x 14 paper are always welcome. We also love cardstock paper of any size and color.
5-Last but not least, set up your Amazon account to donate to NAMI-WRV. It is easy! Just click on this link and approve your Amazon Smile account to donate .5% of your purchases to go to NAMI-WRV. You MUST remember to bookmark the “smile” portal and see the icon on the top left, otherwise credit will not go through if you’re in the standard Amazon shopping portal.
