Select A Kit
Our Kits are designed to meet international and U.S. needs. Based on your group, you may choose to assemble International Hygiene Kits or Promise Packs for an international response, and Hygiene Kits, SchoolTools or Women’s Hope Kits to make an impact in the U.S. (even in your own community).
Order Your Kit Material
When you select a kit to order, you will be re-directed to the website for “Kits For Kidz” who is our supplier for materials. You will order the materials from “Kits For Kidz” who will then be responsible for shipping directly to the location you indicate before your event. The suggested lead time for ordering is at least 3 weeks.
Market Your Event
The Kits team has created numerous resources to make your build successful. Resources such as Flyers and Logistics Packet are available for download on each related Kit page, under The Kits section. We also provide additional resources associated with each Kit build on this website.
Receive Kit Products
Your Kits will be delivered by a large truck to your event location in coordination with "Kits For Kidz". Kits are delivered on a pallet(s) in bulk boxes that are shrink wrapped. Depending on the amount of Kits you order, this will be a minimum of 1 pallet and can go up from there.
Assembly Day, "The Event"
This is the day your team has been waiting for! Gather your volunteers, build your kits, write a personal note and MAKE AN IMPACT FOR GOOD in someone’s life.
Pick Up Assembled Kits
After your event, you will have assembled Kits in many loose or stacked boxes that will need to be picked up. You can either coordinate distribution locally (see FAQS), or World Vision will schedule the pick-up with our vendor. Email GIKOffers@worldvision.org to request a pick-up. Please be on-site and have some volunteers help to make the process go smoothly. The pick-up cost is covered by World Vision.
Note: Pick-up can only be scheduled Monday-Friday, so please consider this when planning your event.
Distribution of Kits
Now that my Kit build is done, where do the Kits go?
INTERNATIONAL KIT DISTRIBUTION
|PROMISE PACKS||INTL HYGIENE KITS|
The Kits are sent to one of World Vision’s distribution centers in either Fife, Washington or Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where they are prepared for international shipping; they are then transported to a port and shipped overseas.
U.S. KIT DISTRIBUTION
|HYGIENE KIT||SCHOOL TOOLS|
|WOMEN'S HOPE KIT|
Your Kits Event Specialist will arrange to pick-up your kits and have them shipped to our nearest US Programs warehouse for distribution or your group can decide to keep the Hygiene Kits, SchoolTools backpacks or Women’s Hope Kits and organize a distribution with a local school, shelter or other organization.
THE BEST STEP
Your group can experience the joy of knowing that you changed a person's life by donating your time to build a kit and write a personal note of encouragement to someone who may never have the chance to say Thank You.
