Maintaining a Shelter and three offices sure takes a lot of goods and supplies! We’re always in need of something, and anything we don’t use in our offices or Shelter, we give to survivors for their own homes. Below is our wishlist of items we currently need. At this time we are able to take new items but not used or gently used items. Please call us in advance to let us know what you’d like to donate. Our Office and Volunteer Coordinator will get  in touch with you to arrange a drop off or pick up of the wish list items with our tri-county staff. Thank you!
