Our Wish List - We Gladly Accept Donated Items!

We would love to accept donated items that are either new, or gently used. Sometimes we are looking for items so that we can repurpose them. If you have some of these items and would like to contribute them for the children's use, please contact me and we'll figure out a way to get together. I believe we can do this! The kids are worth it!!!-- Ms. Zonda
