Holiday Gift Drive

Wrapped gift box on grunge background

Buying presents for family and loved ones is a special part of the holiday season, especially for parents and children. Many of our clients have very few resources for gift giving, so one of the ways we support them is by purchasing $25 gift cards and distributing them in early December. This gives our clients the pride of being able to select their own gifts for their children. It may sound like a small thing, but it’s not! These personally selected gifts often times help residents re-connect and bond with their children during the holiday season.

This year we expect to purchase approximately 100 gift cards valued at $25. You can support our Holiday Gift Drive by clicking on Donate Now. Enter Holiday Gift Drive in the box that says: I want my donation to be dedicated.

Help us make the holidays a happy one for our clients and their children!

 If you would rather donate by check, donations can be sent to the address below with “Holiday Gift Drive” in the memo line.

Use Amazon Smile to support Interim Inc

amazon smile interim

Just in time for the holidays, we have a fantastic way for you to get all of your holiday shopping done and support Interim Inc at the same time. All you have to do is buy the things you would normally buy.

If you are an Amazon.com shopper,  you can support Interim and our mission to provide services for adults with mental health challenges. Interim is a participant in Amazon Smile, a  program that donates 0.5 percent of every purchase to the nonprofit of the shopper’s choice.

From the shopper’s point of view, it looks just like the Amazon.com interface you know…same search capability, same promotions, One-Click shopping, even Amazon Prime. You shop as you normally shop, and Amazon donates 0.5 percent of your purchase to Interim when you are done. Of course, your confidentiality is protected; Interim never sees how much any individual is participating. We only see the results at the end of each quarter. There’s no cost or additional charges added to register or give through Amazon Smile.

Just remember: in order to make sure your charity gets the donation, you always have to start shopping from the AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) page. But, if you use Chrome web browser, this is solved by downloading the Smile Always extension. This way anytime you click on or navigate to an Amazon link, the extension will redirect the page to the corresponding AmazonSmile page.

If you’re not sure which Amazon page you’re on, just glance at the top of the page to make sure you see the AmazonSmile logo and banner. It will also show you what charity you are supporting. If you ever want to change it, you can simply click on the Charity and it’ll allow you to select a new one.

If you are shopping for personal items, please consider Amazon Smile as an easy way to support Interim. The web site is: Smile.Amazon.com.
