Program Wish Lists

Your collections or in-kind donations relieve a huge strain on our budget and allow us to serve more clients. Most of our programs don’t have money for “extra” things like umbrellas or tickets to events that make life for our clients a little easier. The following programs have a variety of needs for supplies, equipment and food. Please contact Shelby McCarty, Community Engagement Coordinator, at for more information or to gather donations for those we serve. We appreciate anything you can do to strengthen our programs and community!
