Donations are always welcome, but the community can get specific by purchasing much-needed items from the organization’s Amazon Wishlist. Items change frequently; check back often for immediate needs.
Items on the list when the AJC checked included essential items like shampoo, facial tissue, toilet paper, microwaves and air filters. Current needs: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1HP7IY1KAO6BP/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex.
