Donations made to Kids Incorporated are used to meet several needs. Financial donations
help pay for child care scholarships or to assist families meet urgent emergency needs
(such as to purchase baby formula, diapers, etc.). Funds are also being collected to
purchase school readiness materials and books for Going Places, our Literacy Mobile
which visits area Early Head Start programs much like a lending library.
Used children's clothing, toys, bikes, etc. are quickly gathered up from our clothes closet
by clients in need. New and used children's books find homes with children or in child
care programs where volunteers can read them to classrooms of delighted children.
Diapers are always needed, especially infant & toddler sizes.
The following items are needed to help families and early education & care programs in
our community. Please feel free to drop off items at any of the Kids Incorporated offices
(Tallahassee, Greenville or Quincy) or at any of our 5 early learning centers (Tallahassee,
Monticello, Greenville or Madison).

Volunteers make a significant difference in the lives of children and they augment the
many services provided by Kids Incorporated. Volunteers read to children in a child care
setting, they provide children's activities at community events and promote quality child
care, and they helping in the office and organization's resource center. They adopt
preschool centers year-round as well as families during the holidays. Some volunteer a
few hours a year, others an hour a week or more. They make a difference in the lives of
children and the children, in turn, make a difference in their lives!
