Wish List Brigade

This program assists in obtaining specific personal care items needed by the residents. For example, you may be asked to donate towels and washcloths as this is an ongoing need for the shelter. Volunteers work with the shelter program Directors to determine items needed and how they will be obtained and distributed.

Dinners for Residential Programs

This program is responsible for ensuring that residents are provided with a well-balanced meal every day of the week throughout the year. Volunteers are needed to prepare meals at home, transport and serve dinner at the shelter. The average number of women being served is 24-30 daily. The Guild is responsible for one dinner a month.
