- Mom needs a washer and dryer.
- Two teens would love video games and clothes.
- Little girl is dreaming of a bicycle or Barbie dream house.
- Babies need walking toys and diapers, diapers, and more diapers.

Our shelter is open 365 days a year and regularly takes in new residents around the holidays. We want to make sure they not only have what they need, but they also have the comfort of knowing Santa will still find them in this new place.
