Additionally, Ritter Center operates seasonal programs that require a large number of in-kind donations from the community.
During Thanksgiving , Ritter Center collects frozen turkeys and grocery store gift cards to distribute to low-income families along with traditional side dishes to ensure that all families have a reason to be thankful during the holiday weekend.
The agency’s Family to Family Holiday Program allows generous community members and groups to “adopt” a less fortunate family for the winter holidays. Donors can begin signing up for this program in October and then shops for their adopted family with a provided gift wish list.
In July through mid-August, Ritter Center collects backpacks, school supplies, and department store gift cards for its Back-to-School program which helps ensure that children start the school year prepared to learn and achieve scholastically.
If you have any questions regarding in-kind donations, please do not hesitate to contact Benjamin Leroi, Development Director at 415-457-8182 x106.
