Rotary Donations In Kind gathers material for Specific Project Requests, Regular Requests ? where we know the goods will be required and for Future Projects ? where we know or assume there is a need that will be researched and turn into a Potential Project.
There is also a constant need for packing and shipping consumables including Packaging Tape, Strapping Tape, Framing Timber, Plywood, Plastic Wrap, etc.
The Store also houses Computers 4 Kids which operates in a similar way, recycling Computers and associated items. For more details click here
Freight is expensive which forces us to be selective in the goods we can accept. While there may be a need for bulky items overseas, often the freight cost exceeds their value. Quality is a similar issue if you would not wear it or use it we generally don?t need it.
The following provides a guide to the material we need and detail sheets are available. If you are unsure about the need for a particular item please contact Laurie firstname.lastname@example.org prior to shipping.
The above is indicative only and if you have goods that you feel may be of use, please contact the Laurie prior to delivery. email@example.com
Small quantities can be delivered to the Store during normal opening times. For bulk deliveries please contact Laurie first, to allow storage space to be allocated.
Obtaining goods for Club Projects
When a Rotary Club develops a project that requires goods, they register the project at the Store and supply a Project Wishlist and a Project Overview Sheet. Goods are only available for projects approved by a Rotary Club Board and where they are given away for free. The goods required for "Regular Requests" are often available as unallocated stock and are shared between projects. Special items may be available in any of the National Stores and the only limitation is the practical one of inspection and shipment to the Store. Where the goods are unavailable locally Rotary Clubs can contact other stores or request assistance through the Networker.
Computers are available from Computers 4 Kids. For more information click here
