GenNext is excited to engage with you in this socially distanced world. Doorstep Donations is a new way for you to stay involved and support initiatives led by the United Way. 

What is a Doorstep Donation?

Throughout the year GenNext will collaborate with local organizations to collect items that are needed most (e.g., menstrual products, food donations, school supplies, winter clothing). 

Doorstep Donations is an easy and safe way to support your community. You will purchase the products in need, register for a pick-up online and our GenNext team will arrange a time to pick up your donations right from your doorstep, and get the items where they need to go! 

Our team will photograph your donation from a safe distance and share it on our social media channels. Don’t worry, we’ll be sure to tag you so that your followers can see your generosity and join in on the fun! If you hate pictures or don’t want them posted on social media, we’ll respect your privacy and reserve our best air-fives for you.

It’s that simple!
