Neighbors in Need caters to an at-risk youth’s personalized needs by providing them with the basic necessities such as food, personal hygiene products, clothing, and medicine on a day-to-day basis. We give donors an opportunity to connect with the receiver on a personal level; while providing a seamless donation experience that integrates with their day-to-day shopping routine. Through a web portal, Neighbors in Need allows those at risk of homelessness to request items, and donors can choose to purchase items and these items get donated directly to our locker system.
