IN-KIND GIVING

(Donating new items in liu of monetary donations)

 

Many of our wishes are made possible by pro bono (volunteered) services and in-kind (free or deeply discounted) donations, including:

 

Auction Items
A Wish Come True holds fundraising events with both silent and live auctions.  If you would like to donate a new or collectible item for one of our auctions, please contact awish@awishcometrue.org.

 

Wish Kid Gifts
When our wish granters visit a wish child for the first time, we bring gifts for all of his or her siblings, to make everyone feel included.  Toys, games and books are always needed, for children of all ages!  We like to call these items "greeting gifts".  We also provide our wish kids with travel bags and items before they depart on a “travel wish”.  We are currently in need of backpacks for both girls and boys, sunscreen, water bottles, children’s sunglasses, and disposable cameras.  All of these gifts and travel items must be new.  These in-kind donations help bring wishes to life or add that special touch that can bring an extra sparkle to a child's eyes!  Please consider making a donation today. 

 

Travel Items
If you have any new travel items to donate, we would appreciate it!  We always pack a travel bag for our wish child and we are in need of the following: 

   

(New items only, please!)

 

  • Disposable cameras

  • Toothbrushes

  • Photo albums

  • Sunglasses

  • Sunscreen

  • Hand held games

  • Coloring books

  • Crossword puzzle books

  • Children's reading books

  • Teenage reading books

  • Backpacks

  • Raincoat ponchos

 

Bring your items to the Wish House, located at 1010 Warwick Avenue in Warwick, or call and we'll arrange to pick them up.  You can really help make a child's special wish even more memorable!
