Recently Filled Needs

Anyone have an extra microwave?

It's officially cold out and families appreciate being able to have hot food or drinks quickly.  We have a need for a new or very gently used (ie: clean and in good working order) microwave. I know I don't make it a single day without using mine!  It can be taken to either of our drop-off locations as normal - or pick-up can be arranged for your convenience due to its larger size.

Refillable Water Bottles Needed

Covid has shut down the water fountains and we have thirsty kiddos. We are looking for refillable water bottles for kiddos. If you have some (clean and shiny) in new or pretty new shape we would love to take them off your hands. :)
