We are going to be donating 10% of profit during summer months to an elementary school, to get the class rooms started out on a good foot. (June, July, August) We will be taking the 10%, loading up on supplies for classrooms, and that's how well will donate.
But I was thinking that we should do at least one more donation, maybe a women's shelter, or something. But it has to be local, because that's what we guarantee. And we prefer to donate tangible items, like school supplies, or clothing, etc.

What about donating to a pet shelter? You could donate food, cleaning supplies, beds, or even talk with a vet and donate vaccinations.

The only problem that I see with donating tangible items is that most non-profit places can buy those items at a huge discount. You may help the organization out more if you donate money. However, I do think that donating clothes to a women's shelter would be a good idea. You could also create a program that helps women find business attire to wear to interviews. Good Luck!

Maybe you could do a gift card for each teacher (or a select grade). That way they get the exact supplies that they need.
