The Monthly Wish: September 2021
By: Matthew Wilkins, Office Coordinator on Sep 17, 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? Bottled water, Ziploc bags, toilet paper, deodorant, and 30-gallon garbage bags!
Most of our guests walk or use public transportation to get to work, doctor appointments, etc. Bottled water will help keep our guests cool and hydrated while Wisconsin continues to stay warm for us!
Lastly, while we continue to serve we find ourselves in greater need of things like toilet paper, deodorant, and garbage bags. Any donation of these items would be greatly appreciated.
Keep reading for our September list:
We have an urgent and ongoing need for these items:
Ziploc bags of all sizes
