That bag is filled with whatever donations we have that day, based on what we all would need to start our day--- like shampoo, conditioner, body wash or soap, deodorant, lotion, razors, shaving cream, toothbrush & toothpaste. We also include one roll of toilet paper, if we have it to give. Please consider having a toiletry drive at your place of business, place of worship or even ask a gathering of friends. It would be greatly appreciated.  
Our supplies are low and demand is high.
We also except donations of Adult Incontinence Supplies.

. 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!

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!
