Shelter Wish List

Shelter staff work hard to utilize our resources carefully and efficiently.  Donations of items from the list below will help us stretch our budget further and meet the many and varied needs of our clients.

The Shelter’s Emergency Residential Facility operates as a home for our clients during their stay.  We find the items we most often need are those that help maintain the general upkeep of a functioning household.  This list reflects the items that are most often needed.  If you have specific items you think may be useful that are not listed below, please call our Community Outreach Center at (434) 963-4676.
