General Agency Program: We have an active roster of over 1,000 agencies and most don’t have secured funding. When a company makes a donation to K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, we review the community partner list and distribute the product as appropriate. This relationship has no agency fee and we try to distribute the donations among as many agencies as possible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Fill out the application on our website, listed under Community Partner, and provide the following back up materials:

  • A copy of your IRS letter certifying your 501(c)(3) tax exempt status
  • A roster of your board of directors including names, and if appropriate, their professional affiliation and title
  • Any links to or copy of your agency newsletter or brochure or other informational materials

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers will contact the recipient agency when a donation becomes available and, at that time, coordinate the delivery time and date. Although we strive to meet the needs of all of our recipient agencies, we cannot guarantee the delivery of any particular product and we cannot promise that donations will be delivered on a certain date. We will pass on donations to your organization when we receive them from the donating company.

It may be as little as a few boxes or as large enough to fill a semi-truck.  The amount of storage space you have and the number of volunteers you have to help unload and process the donation will affect our decisions on which agency will receive the product.

Each agency can use its own process to distribute the donation based on how it best serves the local community. But there are some guidelines that the recipient agency must follow.

  • The Community Partner is required to provide K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers with photos taken during the processing, sorting or distribution of product donated to the agency.
  • The Community Partner must provide an accounting of how many people received the donation, i.e. how many people were helped with a specific donation shipment.
  • The Community Partner is expected to aid K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers in obtaining thank-you letters and testimonials for use in printed materials, newsletters and on our web site.
  • The Community Partner agrees to accept the donation “as is,” inspect it upon arrival or pick-up, and to assume full responsibility once it has been received.
  • The Community Partner is required to remove all paper tags (price tags) or other indicators (e.g. stickers, stamps) that denote the price, bar code, manufacturer and/or company on both the outside and inside of the product.
  • The Community Partner must agree to never sell any product donations or to distribute it to any agency that intends to sell the product. Donations from K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers cannot be sold, bartered or used for fund raising purposes. If the product is sold, then the agency will be liable to the fullest extent of the law and will be removed from the K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers distribution list.
  • The Community Partner should include or mention K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers in all publicity related to a product donation
