Wish List

A simple, effective way to give to those in need is to help out with something on a favorite program's wish list. You don't have to spend a lot to make a huge difference. You may even find some of these items when you are cleaning out your closets, or you may be looking for a way to recycle some of your stuff. If you have any of the things listed, they would mean a lot to us! If you can donate any of these items, please call Carol tatch at (503) 595-2001.
