Current Needs

  1. New Unwrapped Toys and Gifts for children ages 0-18. Each year, homeless dads living at the Mission give gifts to hundreds of their kids & grandkids. For many men, it’s a first step toward reconnecting with family. We need the toys and gifts by Wednesday, December 16th.
  2. Gift Bags for 55 Men. Fill small party favor bags with treats, or fill larger gift bags with things like a pocket calendar, umbrella, pens, socks, water bottle, tissues, lip balm, lotion, etc. (please don’t put soap in the same bag as food). Be creative! We need all gifts by Wednesday, December 23rd and will distribute them to the men on Christmas Eve.
  3. 1-inch 3-ring binders for the Learning Program (no larger than 1-inch)
  4. New Underwear and T-Shirts for men: We especially need 2x and 3x boxers and 2x and 3x undershirts.
  5. Acid Reducer: Many of our men struggle with heartburn or acid reflux. We have a good supply of cold & flu capsules at the moment, but we could use acid reducers (pills).

  7. Personal care supplies for men: Shampoo, men’s anti-perspirant, wash cloths and shaving cream are most needed.
