Gift Cards Help Us in So Many Ways
City House literally can not receive too many gift cards. We use them for so many things, year-round. And no amount is too small or too big. It all adds up and we put them all to good use.
We can use gift cards for any of the following:
Overall: Walmart and Target – our No. 1 preferred gift cards. We do a ton of our shopping at these spots – groceries, needs of the residents, including clothing, hygiene products, etc. And we have a Walmart SuperCenter and Target right around the corner from our homes and emergency shelter.
Grocery: Kroger and Tom Thumb gift cards also work well.
Clothing: Kohl’s, Payless Shoes, Burlington Coat Factory, Ross
Electronics: Best Buy (we have a constant need for new video games, DVDs and other fun stuff for the kids). We currently have several older residents attending school who could use laptops for school which can be purchased with the gift cards.
Transitional Living Program (TLP) Young Adults: QT gas gift cards are fantastic to help pay for gas, while Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl’s and Ross help us keep the houses stocked and the young people outfitted for school and work.
So if you are wanting to do something for the kids at City House, gift cards are simply awesome! You can drop them off at our administrative offices at 901 18th St., Plano, 75074 or at My Friend’s House. Please call Karen Voelker at 972-424-4626 or firstname.lastname@example.org on any questions.
Help out with Community Requested Gifts
Other than gift cards (which are preferred), other items that we need for our use during the year include: new hoodies and shoes (we cannot take used clothing), mp3 players with headphones, pre-paid cell phones with minutes, wallets, new release DVDs, laptops, tablets.
We thank you for your generosity! Our kids appreciate everything our community does to help make their lives a little more special!
