In-Kind Donations
In-kind donations and gifts allow our residents to enjoy birthdays, celebrate holidays, and to shop on campus. Here are some of our recurring needs, as well as needs for our incentive-based “Point Store.”

Our most urgently needed items are on our Amazon Wish List and can be shipped directly to our campus. We need items for tweens and teens, and half of us are boys!

We also have a special list for our ongoing Hygiene Needs.
