Donate clothing: We have partnered with CommunityAid to collect gently used clothing and shoes at any of their 6 locations using our partner number 30022 and PATSA will receive 6 cents per pound. This really adds up. See our partnership fundraising page for printable slips and more info.
Donate a vehicle: We have partnered with Vehicle Donation to Any Charity for your vehicle donation.  Just go to our webpage on the V-DAC site and they will process your donation, sell your unwanted vehicle–you get a receipt for tax-purposes and PATSA gets a check for the donation less any processing fees.  Go to https://careasy.org/pa-tourette-syndrome-alliance–inc- or click here to go to our page on their site. 
You may be able to give to PATSA through automatic payroll deduction. PATSA is a member of many United Way Agencies and many donors will allow you to give to any 501 (c)(3) charity. Just designate PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance #9692 McSherrystown, PA.
