Wish List
We gladly accept new and gently used previously-owned goods and supplies. Sometimes the amount of space we have available determines whether or not we can take something, honestly. Call us when you have cool and/or interesting stuff (612.729.5151) – there’s no set list of items we take or don’t take. We’ll probably ask about the quality of items, quantity, and size. Both monetary and in-kind gifts are tax deductible. Thank you for thinking of us!
