Wish List

There are many ways to support the Samaritan Center.  One way is to donate an item or items for our "Wish List."  As you can see on the list below, we are in need of everything from gently used and new clothing for our boys (uniform clothes, athletic shorts) to educational supplies for the school and a range of items for the cottages.
Clothing donations help the families that are most in need by providing appropriate and required uniform apparel for their boys.  Other donations help to defray the cost of keeping our campus in good operating condition, and help us to provide occasional rewards for the boys - when earned.  
Gift cards are also a great way to give, and they provide us with flexibility for special uses.  Examples include:  providing lunch for the boys during a field trip, getting miscellaneous items to outfit the cottages (curtains, small appliances).  Contributions of all sizes and types are welcome and much appreciated.
If you have questions regarding specifics on any of these items, please call us at 772-287-4123.  Thank you!
