Product Philanthropy Product Distribution Day

June 13

Goods Distributed Through United Way’s Product Philanthropy Program

Philanthropic organizations can contact Melinda Martin (Melinda@unitedwaylife.org or call 805-922-0329) for more information about how to qualify to receive product.

Companies large and small have donated food, clothing, and other essential items to be distributed to those who are struggling. Organizations including Amazon have donated roughly $170,000 in philanthropic goods to Northern Santa Barbara County (NSBC) United Way.

United Way, through collaboration with Good360, has developed partnerships with charitable organizations to distribute these goods. On Wednesday, June 13th, a truckload of gaylords filled with donations will be distributed. (A gaylord is a very large box placed on a pallet. Gaylord dimensions are typically 40” x 48” x 45”(H). United Way uses a forklift to remove the gaylord from the delivery trailer. Hand unloading a gaylord is not an option.)

Helping the Helpers

The donations will be used to help people in need in the region. For example, the Salvation Army will use the donations to provide clothing and shoes to people who are homeless or in need. Little House, part of Family Services Agency, will help the community’s most vulnerable children, families, and seniors meet their basic needs while simultaneously addressing mental health needs. Good Samaritan Shelter provides emergency, transitional and affordable housing with support services to the homeless and those in recovery throughout the Central Coast.

United Way’s Product Philanthropy initiative has distributed millions of dollars’ worth of household goods, clothing, and other basic needs essentials.

Eddie Taylor, CEO, NSBC United Way, which manages procurement and distribution of the goods, says, “The donations are a testament to the generosity of the community. They show that people and regional organizations are willing to help those in need.
