The Monthly Wish: November 2021
By: Matthew Wilkins, Office Coordinator on Nov 1, 2021
Your generosity powers our mission, so we’re making sure we use your gifts wisely. Here’s a wish list of items for our shelters, updated monthly so you can see what we need most and where you can make the biggest impact.
What’s new this month?
Laundry Detergent PODS:
We do lots of laundry between our three homes and pods are a perfect way to use the right amount of detergent for every load. We are constantly running out of laundry detergent.
This is one of those ongoing items that we are always in need of. You don't think about it until you don't have any, so please help us not run out by donating :)
