We love when volunteers and visitors ask if there are items they can bring for the projects. The answer is YES, and thank you! The following is a list of some general items that will fit in your suitcase.
The top 5 wish-list items are:
Chewable children’s multi-vitamins. These are an easy suggestion if you have friends who want to help!
Thick & thin dry erase markers and small whiteboards.
Scissors, staplers, markers, glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, tape, watercolor paints, and other classroom supplies.
Note: Children should have toys, puzzles, and books with characters who they can relate to and who look like them. We encourage you to donate materials that are appropriate for children of any culture or gender.
Children’s BOOKS in Spanish!
LEGOS and DUPLOS! Help us build a collection! (All building toys are welcome.)
craft items – pipe cleaners, beads, glitter, glue stix, etc.
watercolor paint sets (multiple sets) and paint brushes
magic markers & coloring pencils
coloring books, connect the dots, crossword puzzles
soccer balls, tennis balls, basketballs, etc.
toy tools, doctor’s kits, firefighter’s hats, etc.
