Family Wish Lists

Telling a parent that their child is going to be matched with a Mentor is a truly an awesome experience. It get's even better when the match starts to see each other and their relationship begins to blossom. Since we are pretty close with the families of our mentees, we know that often they could use a little bit of help. Although we've been doing this for years and years, we're finally putting it into words and out into the community to see if we can extend the help even more. 

We've put together a Wish List of all the things that our families may need, and things that would be considered a generous gift. Please know that we will only give these items to families that we know could truly use them. Thank you for your generosity!

Wish List Items/Suggestions:
  • Grocery gifts cards (grocery stores in North Durham include Loblaws/Presidents Choice stores, Foodland, Food Basics)
  • Gas gift cards
  • Movie passes
  • New/ Gently Used Electronics (Game consoles, tvs, tablets,cellphones ipods/mp3 players)
  • New/Gently Used Furniture in good condition
  • New/Gently used clothes (specifically requested girls shirts size large, pants/shorts size 8 or 10, and girls socks)
  • New/Gently Used toys, games, books 

Just recently, a community member attended a Blue Jays Game with some of our Bigs and Littles and one of our Littles wanted a signed baseball so this generous lady bought it for him (and a few other baseball goodies) and he was so happy and grateful! 

If there is something else that you have that you would like to donate to a family, please let me know!
