To Donate Items:If you are not in a position to give a financial contribution, you, your church, workplace, school or organization can certainly share items for use at Casa de los Angeles. It is important to contact us before beginning any collections as the manner in which items are delivered is something to consider. Often significant postal taxes must be paid by Casa de los Angeles on delivery. If you are going to volunteer with us and you would like to gather some needed items you can bring them with you. These are some of the things on our wish list:
- Baby supplies . . . diapers, baby wipes, diaper rash cream
- Lotion, children’s toothpaste, toothbrushes
- Classroom supplies – white board markers, erasers, seasonal decorations, kleenex, playdough, pipe cleaners, crayons, pencils, tissue paper, glue sticks, bubbles, paint (finger & tempera), masking tape, Scotch tape, scissors, staplers, poster board, “foam” paper
- Balls and playground equipment, particularly “Little Tykes” products . . . wagons, ride-ons, tricycles
- Small items (books, Beanie Babies, dolls, cars, . . . ) to be given to our children on their birthday. For many of our children, the gift they receive from Casa de los Angeles is the first time they have ever received a gift for their birthday.
- Children’s books and videos in Spanish, games, puzzles, blocks, rhythm instruments, imagination games and toys.
- Office supplies – copy paper, envelopes (letter size and big manila), US stamps, pocket folders, mailing labels (Avery #5160)
- We have partnered with Computadores Pro Jovenes to help our local community. If you have a laptop computer that you would like to donate, bring it down when you come to San Miguel and we will make sure to get it to the right people. Learn more about CPJ here.
Monetary donations can be directed towards specific needs or programs (food, vitamins, classroom supplies, administrative cost staff salaries, medical care, special events, marathon runners, and fundraisers like the Chicago Marathon or the endowment). If you want to designate to something specific, please note it on your check.
