If you had an extra $100-$200 where would you donate?

Preferably kids or animals.

Local animal shelter or local food bank or kids food program.

This is what I would do if I were you, since you want to give to help kids or animals.

My own donations are usually local. Salvation Army, library, etc.

I gave away my “stimulus” check to several different individuals in my life (like my hairdresser, for one) who became unemployed last spring when everything shut down. I will give this second check away too, but maybe all of it to a local business guy who runs his shop all by himself and therefore hasn’t been able to receive CARES money.

I do monthly autopay donations to my local SPCA, our local food bank, and the USO.

Maybe to your local greyhound rescue org? A local literacy foundation or public library? How about since you're tech savvy finding out if there's a local Y or similar offering tech classes? You could maybe sponsor a kid or two for the registration fee.

I like the local food bank. We volunteer there-- well, before COVID

I also donate to the local church that provides presents to families who cannot afford them.

I donate to DSís therapy center.

1. It directly benefits my kid, his teachers/therapists, and his classmates.

2. They are woefully underfunded so I know how grateful they are for any donation.

St. Judes or grass roots rescue, a dog rescue based in Delaware that I foster with. They bring lots of dogs up from the south, see to all medical needs and try to find them their perfect family.

The dog shelter we got Delilah from.

GEAUX Bags, a localish non profit that provides duffle bags and comfort kits for kids pulled into foster care.

St. Jude because I know too many kids treated there/the local affiliate.

The VOA after-school program.

I just donated yesterday to a local community program. They help children and families in our community with food, clothing, computers, wheelchairs, etc. Totally run by volunteers. If you call them, they come and help.

I donated to my local food bank, my Greyhound rescue group and St. Jude. My payout from my last district was more than I thought it would be (I forgot about summer pay) so I wanted to pay it forward a little.

Thanks for the great ideas.

Where to Donate

I'd donate to a food bank or homeless shelter. Thousands of children are in constant food insecurity and many of them are also homeless. The lines for food assistance during the pandemic is heart wrenching.

Considering the pandemic, I would donate to a food bank near my school. Over 90% of our students are free or reduced lunch and with school being closed for the last month I suspect supplies are getting low.

I donate to our local backpack program. They provide weekend food packages to kids in need. We have several students in our school who take a weekly bag home every Friday. The bag includes items like soup, peanutbutter, fruit, bread, mac & cheese, and oatmeal. It definitely helps our local families and I am able to worry about one less things for our students. I know they will have food on the weekends.

Food Banks are critical resources right now. I often think about those without checking accounts which are hard to get when you are poor and don't have a regular job. How did they receive the six hundred dollar pittance?

Here is a site that evaluates the organizations that receive donations.

I donated some of my stimulus check to a woman who is self-employed and a friend. She has loss 1/2 her clients due to the virus. I also will send money to Praline's Pantry. This distributes food for dogs and cats.

I think wherever you give money to, will be thankful.
