The Monthly Wish: December 2021
By: Staff on Dec 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?
Always be prepared for the worst when it comes to Wisconsin winters! Please help our guests stay warm with long underwear adding an extra layer to staying warm for the harshest of months.
As the winter comes rolling in gloves is another necessity for our most vulnerable on the streets for the night or when running all day in the cold.
