First pick the type of donation drive you are interested in
hosting. Then see our Tips and Tricks
to make it an even greater impact!
Welcome Baby Bags

Personal Care Drive for Brian's Basic Needs Room

Winter Weather Wear Drive
Collect winter boots of all sizes, new hats, gloves, and winter coats. Walking around in the Michigan Winter can be frigid, warm someone's heart and soul with new Winter Weather Wear!
Shoes Help Our Elementary Students
You can go in several directions to support shoes, host one or all of the following drives to make it the best school year possible!
Collect school supplies such as pens, pencils, notebooks, tissues, glue sticks, paper, backpacks, crayons, pencil cases, markers, new books for children in elementary school, etc. Items will be distributed at our annual Shoes Help Our Elementary Students program each Fall.
Fill a Shoe Box Drive
We provide the S.H.O.E.S. box, your donation drive fills it with spare change, checks, or cash to help purchase thousands of new shoes needed for Shoes Help Our Elementary Students.
With every pair of shoes a child in need picks out, we provide a pair of socks as well! Consider collecting fun socks for children in K-5th grade! Pair each set together and donate at the end of your drive!
Collect new or like-new clothing of every size and every department: men's, women's, and children's. All types are needed including casual, professional attire, and labor workforce attire.
We try our hardest to reduce our imprint on the environment. Please consider hosting a drive to collect slightly stained cotton clothing and linens and/or shoes with the soles still intact.
Financial Drive or Fundraising Fun!
In The Image's resources are FREE. . . but money is needed to keep the operations going at ITI. A fundraiser is always helpful - whether that is hosting a party at your home to bring together friends and family to give a gift, , a restaurant proceeds night, a bake sale, or other creative ideas! Every penny counts to meet the needs of the mission.
