Program Wish List

We have many volunteers who do not have hours to give, but still wish to offer direct assistance to individuals and families in need.  These individuals help through donations of specifically requested items needed by our programs.

Please, check our “wish list” often, to stay informed of the current program and client needs!

Due to the logistical challenges of picking up, processing, and storing donations of household items, equipment and clothing, we do not always have the capacity to accept these sorts of general donations.  However, our programs continually have specific and immediate material needs.  This is where you can help!

Some are one-time needs, others are ongoing, or seasonal.  Please remember that not all programs are offered in all areas. Be sure to check in with the area contacts listed below to confirm the need and drop-off location.
