In addition to financial support, we rely on in-kind donations from our community to meet the needs of the children and families we serve throughout the entire state of Indiana. We welcome all donations, but it is our desire that gifts to our children in care be new or at the very least gently used. Thank you for having a heart for vulnerable children and families!
Donation Wish Lists
The following Wish Lists contain items that are needed all year long and can be dropped off or mailed to the assigned office to go to children and families in that community. Please click the links to purchase and mail donations to the assigned office. Thank you for your help enriching the lives of The Villages’ children and families!
(not on list but still in need of gas and grocery gift cards)
