Gifts In Kind
Queens Centers for Progress has created a “Wish List” for in-kind donations. The items listed here will be used by our programs. Donating a wish list item is a great way for an individual or business to help those in their community, and get a tax deduction in the process. If you have any questions, or would like to make a donation, please contact Maryann McAleer (718) 380-3000 Ext. 324
Wheelchairs and Adaptive Equipment
We are in need of manual wheelchairs, adaptive strollers, adaptive chairs, standers, shower chairs, walkers and canes in good condition.
Upgrading your old technology? Please consider donating your fully operable Ipad. There are many apps that help children with developmental disabilities improve on their skills.
Tickets to Local Events
The children and adults participating in our programs love to attend theatrical, musical and sporting events in and around the New York City area. They love to travel on boats and trains and look forward to a variety of day outings. By donating tickets to attractions like these, you will be affording our program participants an opportunity to experience life in a way that would not be possible.
Arts and Craft Supplies/ Painting Supplies/ Photographic Equipment
The adults and children program participants emanate creativity. What better way to express themselves than through Arts and Crafts and Photography programs and activities that are offered in our Children and Adult Centers.
We are in need of supplies such as: construction paper, tissue paper, paints and crayons, glue, ribbon, felt, canvas, acrylic paints, watercolor paper and paints.We also need digital cameras and other accessories that are in 100% working order and photographic paper.
If you have books that are in good to perfect condition we can use them! Books are needed to help expand a child’s imagination and our adults always enjoy a good read!
We are in need of age appropriate toys for the toddlers and preschoolers in our programs. Gently used or new toys are appreciated. We do not accept used stuffed toys.
Kitchenware and Small Appliances
Nothing is more exciting that going out on your own and getting your first apartment! Independence is our goal – so when someone strikes out on their own, we like to be able to provide them with the things they will need to take care of themselves.
Items needed include: dishes, glasses, flatware, pots and pans, small appliances and microwaves. We prefer new items or items in excellent condition.
