We depend upon the donation of tools and jobsite supplies for our worksites. Our job trainees cannot afford critical items like personal protective equipment and safe, well-fitting workboots. Without donations of these items, we would not be able to complete our projects or provide our training program. We are an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that most contributions, both monetary and in-kind (goods or services), are tax-deductible.
