Items like board games, headphones, wireless speakers, sports equipment, and art supplies are big hits! Leggo sets are also always great! For teens, curling and straightening irons, headphones, gift cards, sports team sweatshirts, and college t-shirts and sweatshirts are always needed.

YOUR HELP WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE for children struggling during uncertain times.
