Our Wish List

Our storage space is limited. Due to your generosity, most months we reach its full capacity. We distribute our in-kind to current and former client families once per month, which allows us to accept more donations. To make an in-kind donation, please contact Noeli Perez at (831) 728-5649 x100 to ensure we have space and to arrange drop-off. Items in “red” are our most urgent needs at the moment.
