Creative Ways to Give


Supporting Youth In Need has never been so easy. Now, you can raise money for Youth In Need just by donating old clothing, recycling paper and inkjet cartridges, searching the Internet, shopping online and doing your grocery shopping.

Yellow Boxes: Clothing, Linen and Shoe Donations
When was the last time you cleaned out your closet? Do you have bags of clothes, shoes or linens that you don’t use any more? If so, bring them to one of five Youth In Need locations, and drop them in one of the yellow donation boxes. Your clothing, shoe and linen donations (in any condition) are picked up weekly, and Youth In Need will receive $.06 for each pound collected. All donations must be clean and in plastic bags.
 
Schnucks: eScrip Community Card
Attention, Schnucks shoppers! Request a Schnucks eScrip Community Card from your local Schnucks service desk. Designate Youth In Need as the beneficiary when you activate your card. Swipe your eScrip card every time you check out, and Schnucks will donate a portion of your purchase to Youth In Need. Shop smart at Schnucks to benefit Youth In Need.
