Our Wish List

Dawning Family Services operates a Resource Room for the families we serve.  Items in the Resource Room include non perishable food items, school supplies, and personal care products, and household cleaning supplies.  All items in the Resource Room are generously donated by patrons and volunteers.  The list below serves as a guideline of items that are helpful for the families we serve.

Please note that we are unable to accept clothes or furniture due to limited space in our Family Welcome Center.

Additionally, we have a toy drive for the holiday season.  We can accept new toys for children ages 0-18 each year November 1 through December 1.  The toy wish list will be published online in October.

Additionally, items may be purchased via our Target Registry.
