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 are currently at capacity with toys (Harrah!) but we are still in need of party supplies such as plates, hats, napkins, platic forks and decorations.

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

Outdoor furniture does not need to be new but please ensure that it is in good condition.

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



  • Dressers

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



  • Pots, Pans and Kitchen Utensils 

Kitchen utensils may be used, but please ensure they are in good condition.


  •   Towles

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

If you wouldn't use it in your own home, it's unlikely we can use it here.
