National Network of Resource Centers


TargetTarget is the National Sponsor of the Kids In Need National Network of Resource Centers

Who “shops” at the Resource Centers?

Shopping opportunities are focused on teachers from pre-qualified schools in which at least 70 percent of the student body is eligible for the federal free and reduced lunch program.

Your company can help bridge the supply gap through product donations

The Foundation actively seeks donations year-round in the form of discontinued product, excess inventory, and product donation partnerships. We provide a seamless donation experience. In addition to providing students and teachers with much needed supplies, your product donations can provide tax relief by:

  • Reducing stock at key times of the year
  • Lessening the impact of packaging or logo changes and the occasional over-order
  • Providing a consistent outlet for seasonal inventory

To learn more about how you can elevate your inventory reduction plan from business decision to life-changing community investment, contact Jennifer Lehman at 937-545-0028 or via email at

Product Donation Guidelines

  • Product must be new and K-12 appropriate. Scratch and dent items must be otherwise fully functional. Gently used items are accepted on a case by case basis and must be delivered at donor’s cost.
  • Products intended for use in the classroom must meet the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) guidelines.
  • Kids In Need Affiliates are not in a position to transport industrial products, chemicals, cleaning products larger than consumer size, or any items that require hazmat level shipping.
