Wish List During the Pandemic

Help the staff to keep the youth mentally & physically active.

During this time when volunteers are not able to bring the usual variety of activities & attention, staff would truly appreciate our help to keep the youth positively engaged.  Donations can be dropped off between 7:30 AM – 3:30 PM Mon-Fri.  There is someone at the gate during these times doing wellness checks on arriving staff.  Thank you for your amazing generosity!

Items to engage youth & help reduce anxiety:

  • Weighted blankets (twin size or lap size, 10, 15 or 20 pounds)
  • Squishy stress/fidget items
  • White noise machines
  • Play doh, new board games for young adults
  • Gratitude Journals (not wire bound)
  • Line-a-day journals, creative writing journals with prompts
  • DBT and mindfulness card packs
  • Logic games (educational but fun games),
  • Card games (like uno, skip-bo, and phase 10),
  • Yardage of Fleece material for no-sew blankets
  • Poster board for youth to place family photos on and make a collage (100)
  • Scrapbook paper
