Wish List Giving

Many of our programs still have necessities that the budgets just don’t cover. To help ensure that our programs continue to run smoothly, below is a list of our greatest needs:

15 Passenger van – to transport our youth basketball and track teams to and from events.

7 Passenger Mini Van – to transport our youth to and from field trips, events etc.

iPads or other tablet computers – our Youth and Child Development programs would benefit greatly from this gift. We can help narrow the digital divide in our community by helping our program participants navigate this technology. It can also help staff operate more efficiently from remote sites and help streamline our special events and fundraisers.

Learning Science Activity Tubs – Great opportunity for our Community Learning Center (CLC) students to explore and learn science.

Office Furniture – gently used six and eight-foot tables, office chairs.

Sofas & Tables – Our Youth Department is in need of these gently used items for the social development area.
