In-Kind Donations

In-Kind Donations

The MSSPA receives nearly $60,000 worth of in-kind donations every year. This generosity is part of what allows the organization to care for every equine that comes through the doors. Please read about the types of in-kind donations that are most useful to the Society and how to make your donation. Coming soon, we’ll be adding a “wish list” of new items and options to purchase those for the benefit of the horses.

THANK YOU for contributing to the care of the horses in this way!

 

In-Kind Donation Items

Although we are grateful for any donated items that you wish to share with the MSSPA, below is a list of the most useable items:

  • Clean and usable horse items like saddles, blankets, and other tack
  • General maintenance tools in good condition
  • Gift certificates to frequently-visited stores: Hannaford, Shaw’s, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Walmart
  • Gift certificates to local pet supply stores: Windham Blue Seal Feeds, Windham Tractor Supply

What do we do with donated items?

First and foremost, the Society tries to put the items to use for the benefit of the horses. If the MSSPA cannot use an item, the next option is to sell the item and put the proceeds to use for the organization’s benefit.

There will be a Tiny Take It Away Day on Saturday, August 27th, from 10 AM – 12 PM. Take your pick from a wide selection of gently-used equestrian items and make your donation on the way out the door. From summer fly masks to winter blankets, Tiny Take It Away Day is a great opportunity to stock up on horsey essentials and support a great cause.

How do I donate?

You can drop items at the farm, located at 279 River Road, Windham, ME 04062, any day of the week between 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. We ask that you bring items to the Visitor’s Center located at the front of the property. You can leave items in the front vestibule. If you want to donate larger items like hay, please contact the MSSPA first to make arrangements. We would also love to know when you’re stopping by to leave your items so we can thank you in person! Contact the Society at [email protected] or (207) 892-3040, or let us know on the In-Kind Donation form below.

It is very helpful to have your contact information so that we can properly acknowledge your donation and provide you with a tax receipt. Forms are available in the vestibule of the Visitor’s Center, OR you can quickly complete the below online form before you drop off the items.
