The Simple Things
When our children tell us their wants and needs, we listen, because that's what good parents do. It's our responsibility to provide for them, and while we can't always give them everything they want, we want them to know that they are being provided for and cared about every day.
Some of these children arrive on our campus with absolutely nothing, so, from time to time, we create a wish list for them and send their wishes out into the world.
As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of our friends and our community to help us provide for the hundreds of children that we serve on a daily basis, especially during the holidays. Gifts of personal items are greatly appreciated.
Listed below are items that are needed by children in all of our programs, during the holidays and all year long!
