Special Needs for Local Families

If you have the ability to help with any of these VERY important needs for a few of our local families please let us know. The power of “community” can often make the impossible possible.  Thank you.

  • Commonly requested are tall dressers. If you ever have one to donate let us know.
  • We often need computer mice for desktops or laptops. We prefer the type with USB plugs versus wireless mice that need continual battery replacements. If you have any extra mice let us know.
