IHA Teams with Good360 for Donations

ROSEMONT, Ill.--The International Housewares Association has partnered with Good360, an organization that distributes donated products through non-profit charities, to simplify the process of making donations from IHA members to help victims of natural disasters.

Through this effort, IHA and Good360 are combining to help members donate these products, including the assessment of what housewares items are needed to support victims of recent natural disasters in the United States. Companies' donations may be tax deductible. Good 360, formerly known as Gifts in Kind International, works with a variety of organizations to provide help to rebuilding communities, including more than 30 community redistribution partners that help breakdown large quantities of products. The organization also supports job training programs, churches, Head Start programs, Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs and other organizations.

Housewares companies that would like to donate products can find more information at good360.org, or by contacting Ginny Costello of IHA at gcostello@housewares.org or at 847-692-0114.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
