It's been said that you make a living by what you get - but you make a life by what you give.
TAPIN couldn’t agree more. As an all-volunteer nonprofit, we operate with purpose and efficiency to help our neighbors. People who appreciate their own good fortune – and believe in sharing it – are the heartbeat of our organization.
Are your closets crowded with clothes that the kids have outgrown? What about that furniture sitting in the garage? How about turning your next trip to the supermarket into a life lesson for your children? Explain to them that sharing makes us richer – and even the smallest donation makes a difference. Because it doesn’t matter what you give, but that you give.
Your cash contributions are greatly appreciated.
