Needed Items

Often folks reach out to ask how they can help and what items are most needed for our clients. If you would like to make a non-monetary donation, below is a list of items that would be greatly appreciated.

If you wish to donate something that is not on our list, or if you have a large donation, please call ahead at 814.238.7066. Donations can only be accepted during our business hours of Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, unless otherwise arranged. Please understand we may say “no” to a request as we do not have the need nor the storage space for everything offered to us.
