Birthday Program Wish List

We created a Birthday Room to provide new toys and gifts for children having a birthday who are staying in our shelters or whose families have no resources to celebrate it! We also collect party plates, hats, napkins and candles.

Do you have birthday supplies left over from your own child's party? Drop them off! We can use them!


  •  New board games and books. (any age)

  • Gift cards for bowling, glow bowling or the movies. (enough for the birthday child and a friends to enjoy)

  • Baby dolls, Duplo building blocks, Tonka-type trucks.

  • Items such as action figures, board games, and LEGOs.

  • Anything else you think kids might enjoy!

Gifts for children 6-11 years old are always needed.

When in doubt, everybody loves a gift card!

Shelter Wish List

Underwear and tube socks are always needed in our shelters.

Sizes for men, women, girls and boys are appreciated.

Although many items we take are gently used, we ask that all donations of underwear be NEW.


Dressers are needed for the clients to store their belongings.

Dressers may be used but please ensure that they are in good condition.


Agency Wish List

Being a non-profit agency means that the majority of our funds are allocated to client services.
Donations to the agency will help save time and resources which would best be used for our clients.

  • Dehumidifier
  • Snow blower
