Following the Governor's recommendations, Grassroot Givers will reopen on Monday, June 1st by appointment only. We have several changes, designed to keep all of us safe. Our donation days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, between the hours of 10am and 2pm. Please call 518 599 5157 to make an appointment. Once you're at the building, please call us to let us know you're here, and stay in your car. We will take your donations out of your car and carry them into the building. If you require a receipt for your taxes, you can let us know that when you call and we'll make sure to send you one, once your donations are processed. If you have a large amount of items to donate, please let us know when you schedule your appointment. This will allow us to schedule accordingly.
We have continued to support our nonprofit partners, such as HATAS through our Feed and Read Program and the South End Children's Cafe, with specific needs. We are very grateful to our donors, who have continued to support our work through this ever-changing pandemic.
Our mission is to make a connection between the needs in our community and those who have resources to share. We are happy to continue to make this connection. If you are one of our partner agencies in need of specific items, please let us know. We have the best donors!!!! We really appreciate your support and generosity.
Perhaps you will receive a stimulus payment from the government and are fortunate enough to consider using a portion to help a good cause. Or maybe your income makes you ineligible for a stimulus payment and you are looking to help those in need during this crisis. Please consider a donation to Grassroot Givers so that we can continue our work, promoting literacy and assisting families with clothing and basic home essentials to help stabilize their day-to-day lives. With children home from school, access to books and basic necessities is more important now than ever.
