Boxed items needed: stuffing mix, dried beans/peas, flavored gelatin, and pudding. If you can’t shop for us we gladly accept cash donations designated for holiday food, general food needs, or any aspect of our work you choose to give toward.
HOLIDAY ITEMS: Preparation for the holidays has begun. We need all sizes of batteries, holiday bows and gift-wrapping/scotch tape.
BABY ROOM: We are preparing Christmas baby baskets and are in need of newborn and Size 1, 4 & 5 diapers, and 2T & 3T pull-ups. Infant and toddler toys are needed and appreciated
MEDICAL EQUIPMENT: 2 transfer benches, 1 shower chair, 1 reclining shower/commode,
4 transport wheelchairs, 2 handheld shower units, and 2 heating pads.
ENSURE AND/OR BOOST NUTRITIONAL DRINKS: Insurance will not pay for this unless a client is unable to eat any solid food. Many of our clients are diagnosed with failure to thrive or can’t eat due to various illnesses or they need the extra nutrition while recovering from being ill.
SPACE HEATERS: We have many elderly who either don’t have (or can’t afford to use) central heat. As the winter season approaches, we are being asked for space heaters. Our requests, so far, are from men and women on very low, fixed incomes. Due to safety concerns, we can only give out heaters that have the safety shut-off if tipped over feature.
WE ARE NOW ASKING FOR INDIVIDUALS, FAMILIES AND GROUPS THAT WISH TO SPONSOR A CHILD OR FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS TO CALL US (850-785-1721) OR COME BY (114 E 9TH STREET) TO FILL OUT A SPONSOR APPLICATION.
