Non Profit Wish Lists

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.”   - Mr. Rogers

You can help local non-profit organizations by donating needed items  so they can spend more of their fundraised dollars on programs or services for the people and causes they serve. Thank you for your generosity!
