The turnout was high as many Title I school teachers and nonprofit organizations showed up to shop and pick up office supplies, school supplies, paper products, book covers, etc. that they could use. United Way of St. Charles is able to offer this service through a partnership with Gifts in Kind International™.

In order to qualify to be a member with "Gifts in Kind", you must be a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with proof of your Tax ID number or EIN certificate, or a Child Care Provider who is directly involved with the United Way of St. Charles Success by Six Initiative.
