In-Kind Donations


In-Kind donations are integral to keeping our House stocked and serviced and creating a safe and clean environment for 123 families caring for critically ill children. Whether it be providing fresh linens, setting up holiday lights, providing free haircuts, or clearing out gutters and trimming foilage, our in-kind donors help our Houses feel like home 365 days a year.

Does your business or organization have a service to provide? We welcome you to join our family of House supporters and get involved today by contacting Shannon Slavan, associate director, strategic partnerships at 650.470.6036.
