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!
