Our Amazon Wish Lists continue to be updated as new client requests are shared, various items are donated and needs are met. Many donors have found these lists an easy way to purchase items and have them shipped directly to our administration building. Some volunteers have chosen to do donation drives inspired by the wish lists. There are lists specifically for items needed by our two 30-day shelters as well as a general list for clients participating in the Center's programs.
