Gifts In Kind

Some of our donors and community partners choose to support the children, youth and families at Hull Services with gifts and necessities they might not otherwise receive or have access to. Many kids and youth in our programs live in low-income households where purchasing items such as school supplies, backpacks and birthday presents can be a challenge. Donations of gifts in kind support the needs of the children and families we serve and the critical work that we do to build stronger, healthier communities.

For official tax receipt purposes, a gift in kind requires an invoice stating the value of the donated item. A receipt can be issued for the fair market value of the item; however, an official tax receipt cannot be issued for services. An appraisal will be required for items valued over $1000.00.

How to donate: If you would like to make a gift in kind donation from the list of items below  (new and unwrapped) that are needed during COVID-19, please call Debbie Wheeler at 403-835-1553 or email at Special arrangements will be made to accept the gift in a safe and healthy way.
