Our Birthday Room Wish List

1. Great 'tween suggestion from a donor: a gift card for bowling, glow bowling or the movies. Enough for the Birthday child and a friend to have fun!

2. Board games. New books. And anything else you think kids might enjoy!

3. Baby Dolls, Duplo building                                                                                        blocks, Tonka-type trucks

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. Have birthday supplies left over from your own child's party? Drop them off! We can use them!

Paperbacks! Hardcovers!
Best Sellers! Fiction! Non-Fiction!
If you have books and magazines you've already enjoyed reading and want to pass along....think of us! We have bookshelves in our dining room
that people can select books and magazines
from to take with them and read.
We will be happy to recycle yours!
