Our Wish List

We rely on donations of items from our Wish List to help to keep costs low so that we can continue to provide a home away from home for the hundreds of families that come through our doors each year.

These items, which include baking supplies, toiletries, crafts and recreation materials and pick-me-up gifts for families, go a long way in helping our families feel at home while they are here.


Christmas Giving

You can help us make Christmas special for our families this year by donating to the Santa Sack Program. When donated, the items below are given to our families to open on Christmas morning and help to keep Christmas magical for families going through one of life’s most difficult times.

While having a gift to open on Christmas day is important, please also consider giving the gift of a nights stay at the House. While our families only pay $12 a night, we rely on donors like you to cover the $172 difference to operate each family suite.    DONATE NOW
