Why should you donate surplus stock?
In Kind Direct distributes consumer goods which have been donated by businesses to charity, ensuring no usable product goes to waste.
Founded in 1996 by HRH The Prince of Wales, In Kind Direct offer a simple solution to distribute donated products to local charities, community groups, foodbanks and schools across the UK and internationally that need them to support their communities.
Their network addresses a wide range of social issues, from tackling poverty and domestic abuse, to supporting those experiencing homelessness, illness or isolation.
In Kind Direct has distributed over £250million worth of products to over 10,500 charitable organisations supporting millions of people each year
ReBOUND's technology enables retailers to make better decisions about their inventory, ensuring that returns are optimised and handled sustainably.
In Kind Direct’s mission is that everyone has access to life's essentials, and that no usable product goes to waste. In Kind Direct operate as a hub for both charities and corporate partners to ensure that stock is getting to where it can make the biggest impact.
ReBOUND's founders have been supporting In Kind Direct for the past 12 years by managing the fulfillment and distribution on behalf of In Kind Direct through another logistics business they own. As a diamond patron, ReBOUND has also donated £60,000 to In Kind Direct to-date to help them fund community outreach projects.
Together, ReBOUND and In Kind Direct both understand the logistical challenges of getting products at volume to where they are needed. ReBOUND’s support of In Kind Direct enables their expertise to have an incredible impact.
