FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Give It, Get It INC?
Give it, Get It INC (GIGI) is a non profit organization that focuses on getting things from the hands of people that have them to the hands of people that need them. Items are donated to us and then we decide whether items are in good enough condition for someone else to use. If they are then they are cleaned, sanitized, and either donated directly to individuals or donated to other local Lawrence nonprofits. To see a list of the places we donate to, check out our disclaimer under the “about” tab. If an item is in poor condition we either restore it or try our best to recycle it. Occasionally, items are thrown away, but more often than not we are able to break things down to where at least part of the item is reused or recycled.
All of our available items are listed under the tab above labeled “items.” Items are organized generally under that tab and then more specifically within each category. If you are looking for something specific, feel free to send us a message. It is possible we have an item but it hasn’t made it to the website, or possible that we have contacts at other nonprofits that could get you the things you need.
