  • Whether you are an individual, family, business or organization...if you have items matching our WISH LIST—your contribution is appreciated!  Simply contact us and we will let you know what organization or group is most in need of what you can provide.  We will then put you in personal contact with them that you might deliver your donations in a timely manner.

  • Mentoring and/or onsite volunteer opportunities are available at many youth and family service centers. Arrangements can be made for individual or group participation.

We can help place your good-will where it's needed the most! 
Consider  the following ideas... or come up with an idea of your own!
 

  • Your church, office or business might sponsor a clothes drive for Operation Breakthrough, Synergy, Safe Home, Marillac Center, Niles Home For Children or others.
     

  • Your school or club might host a book drive where everyone attending a school event donates a book or books… with proceeds aimed at anyone of our initiative targets.
     

  • Your organization might collect school supplies. Goods collected will be distributed to needy children at the beginning of each school year.

  • Your youth group, club or office might want to sponsor a toiletry, toy or food drive   Or, a baby shower with donations appropriate for all newborns or mothers.
     

  • Your business might solicit cash donations, or your church or group might have a bake sale—food stamps don’t buy many, essential everyday items.
     

  • Each employee or club member might be asked to donate a pack of diapers… or, a gift certificate for Pay-Less Shoes.
