Gift Cards

The donation of gift cards is a special and fun way to provide Graffiti 2 resources for the programs that serve our children, teens, and adults. These cards provide us direct access to the supplies we need most without the hassle of shipping costs or time constraints

Another fun way to support our work is to host a birthday party for your child. In lieu of gifts for your child, invite guests to bring gift cards to donate to Graffiti 2.

School Supply Sale

At the beginning of the school year Graffiti 2 provides a school supply sale for our community. The supplies are sold at an extremely low price so the parents can have pride in buying their children supplies for the school year. This is a wonderful opportunity to share Christ’s love with our neighborhood. The school supply sale is a tangible way to reach out to a hurting community in Christ’s name.

In lieu of mailing items also consider sending us a gift card to Staples, Amazon, Target, Visa/Mastercard gift cards, or give financially and we will purchase items directly.

*Items with an asterisk are supplies we are consistently not able to provide in the amount our community needs.

If your team would like to organize a collection of supplies to distribute while serving at G2 please contact us so we can arrange that opportunity.

Creating Toiletry Bags

2. Items go to both boys and girls, so do not target one gender in particular.
