Listed below are items that will be greatly appreciated by residents of St. Mary’s Center for Women and Children. The most helpful items are things the families can use as they transition to a life of independence in the community, as well as items that support them while living in St. Mary’s Home, Margaret’s House, Bridge Home, or Crossroads Family Shelter.
St. Mary’s Center respectfully requests that items be new and fully-functioning containing all working pieces.
