We are so very grateful for your interest in supporting our community’s kids by giving supplies. As a privately funded organization, donations can really make a difference for our children and families. However, as our primary services are caring for children and families, our staffing resources for sorting and managing donations is limited. We ask that you refer to our list of most needed and used items. If there is any doubt about the need for your items, please contact us so we can help ensure your items can support our community to its fullest capacity.
Supply donations can be dropped off Monday-Friday from 8:30 am 4:30 pm (excluding holidays). Questions? Contact our House Manager: 509.340.0491 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in ordering off our Amazon Wish List, please have those purchases sent to 2230 E. Sprague Ave, Spokane WA 99202. Our Child Development Specialist and House Manager update this list on a weekly basis. We encourage you to use this list as a guide if you would rather shop elsewhere!
