In-Kind Wish List
We are grateful for the support of our donors in helping us meet the needs of families receiving services from Family Lifeline. We count on the support of donated goods and services to create quality programs for families. Here are some examples of items needed to support our various services.
Older Adults & Individuals with Disabilities
Friendly Baskets of Cheer:
(Fall Project) Brightening older adults’ holidays, one goodie basket at a time. Fill a basket with some of these suggested items: stationery, toiletries, non-perishable food items, cold weather items, and large print activities. Drivers are also needed to deliver baskets on a designated day!
Home Care Totes:
Hold a drive to collect supplies that our home care aides need as they care for our clients. Some suggestions include hand sanitizer, gloves, paper towels, hand lotion, band-aids and alcohol pads.
Child Home Safety Drive:
Help our families make their homes safe for young children with these needed items: outlet plugs (lots of these!); cabinet and drawer latches, locks, and straps; door knob covers; edge and corner guards; and anti-tip safety devices.
Hold a book drive to collect new or gently used books specific to infants, toddlers, young children, and Moms-to-be. We really need books! Gently used books, board books, any sort of kids books!
Back to School Bins:
