We are blessed by those who have given to help our children and agency over the past 106 years of service. The community’s ongoing compassion for the youth in our shelters is truly something to feel thankful for this holiday season.
As always I am looking for lots of elves to help shop, donate money, gift cards, or gifts to help make Christmas a magical memory that the youth can cherish. You can be a part of that dream. The children who live in our shelters range in age from 1 year through 17 years. The youth really enjoyed the outing gift cards (movies, golf, go-karts rides, trampoline center, restaurant cards, etc.)
This year we have added some items the shelters could use to help provide better care for the children and teens. We appreciate your kindness and support. Please review our wish lists to determine how you can help.
