Doorstep Donations

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!

GenNext Doorstep Donation – Summer Success

June 9 to July 7, 2021

Doorstep Donations is back! This time we are looking for children’s book donations to provide kids with books they can take home as part of the United Way’s Summer Success program.

Summer Success is a United Way initiative that takes an upstream approach in helping vulnerable children move towards grade level reading by tackling their summer learning loss.

GenNext can help you contribute to this event in 2 ways!

How do I sign up for a pick-up?

Check out the details of our featured collection drive below. Click the registration button to sign-up or choose to donate online. Once you sign up for the event to schedule your pick-up time, you will receive directions on how you can safely make your Doorstep Donation donation.

1. Direct $$ Donation

What can your donation buy?

  • $15.00 will buy 2 take-home books
  • $25.00 will buy 1 hard covered book
  • $35.00 will buy 1 backpack of school supplies
  • $25.00 will by a Good Food box for a family (box of fresh, healthy, and nutritious produce)

2. Doorstep Donation

  • Buy some new children’s books from your favourite bookstore (show some #locallove and support a locally-owned store!). The Summer Success program is for kids going into grades 2 & 3 (7-9 years old), so grab something geared towards that age group.
  • Write a few words of encouragement in the front cover of the book.
