How can you help

Donate Now Through!

WISH is grateful to all those who donate much needed clothing and supplies.  The women who access WISH routinely need the following items.

We suffered a flood in December and our storage space has still not been rebuilt.  If you’re able to call in advance of bringing your donations in, we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to check with you that we have space to accept your donations.
