Gifts in Kind

Discover a simple & inexpensive way you can help others in need!

Gifts in Kind (GIK) are products that are needed in our grass roots projects in Africa. Your donated product(s) will be distributed through our Sequoia Ministries project workers to children and families in need. Sequoia Ministries places GIK in the hands of hundreds of people in need each year.

The following is a list of tangible items, or Gifts in Kind, that are needed for our work in the local communities. Donations of these materials are of great benefit to the recipient, and much appreciated. If you are interested in helping in this way please write a note in the Comment Box on the Contact Us page for specific instructions regarding where to ship materials to a Sequoia Ministries distribution point in California, USA.
