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 kitchen
