Benevolence Program

The Lisbon Project is a non-profit association that accepts donations of any kind. Donations are a responsibility of the Benevolence Program, which runs three activities – Pop-Up Store, Baby Supplies, Specific Items Request.

  • The Benevolence Program assures that the donations that arrive in the Lisbon Project reach our community members through two initiatives: Family Friday Pop-Up Store, small-size pop-up store that makes some available clothing items and shoe wear during ‘Family Friday’ event; monthly Pop-Up Store, big-size pop-up store that displays all the donated items that reach the Lisbon Project and that takes place on the last Saturday of each month.
  • Baby Supplies aims at providing baby goods to a selection of families in need once a month.
  • Specific items request is an initiative that aims at providing our community members with home appliances, furniture, or other specific items in need.

At the moment, the Lisbon Project has no storage space or way of transporting big items from the donor’s location to our community members’ homes.
