We rely primarily on in-kind donations to meet the needs of our clients. We are very happy with reusable items. We do have a meat and dairy specific fund as these items are not donated frequently.

Amazon Wishlist for Specific Items

People always ask us what we need the most of right now, so we update our Amazon Wishlist monthly for specific items we need. You can ship items to the address shown on the list. Local items can be dropped off as well.
