DONATION POLICY

Image by regularguy.eth

I           Benevolence Program

The Lisbon Project is a non-profit association that accepts donations from a variety of donors with the aim of meeting the material needs of our community. Donations are a responsibility of the Benevolence Program, which runs four different activities to ensure that the donations that we receive reach our community members free of cost. These activities include two main distribution events: a monthly Saturday Pop-Up Store, and monthly distribution of Baby Supplies- and one activity to provide punctual requests for items- Specific Items Requests.

 

II          Description of each activity

  • Saturday Monthly Pop-Up Store- A big-size Pop-Up store that displays all the donated items that reach the Lisbon Project and that takes place on the last Saturday of each month.

  • Baby Supplies- Provides baby care goods to a selection of 50 babies once a month.

  • Specific items request- An initiative that seeks to provide our community members with specific items they have requested as they become available for donation.

DONATE BIG ITEMS (FURNITURE, HOME APPLIANCES, ETC)

At the moment, the Lisbon Project has no storage space or way of transporting big items from the donor’s location to our community members’ homes. We kindly ask our donors to arrange the drop off at the interested party OR to keep the big item stored in an appointed location while the interested party arranges transportation.
