Wish List

 

2014 Holiday Wish List

This holiday season, we are collecting gifts for the families and individuals we serve. If you are interested in donating, you can check out the list below for ideas. If you want to have a copy to take with you as you shop, you can download a copy of the list HERE. You may also contact our Communications and Development Associate, Rachel Quednau, if you would like to sponsor an entire family, or for "giving tree" tags. She can be reached at rachelq@hopehousemke.org or 414-389-3834. Important: Please bring in your gifts unwrapped and unlabeled. Gifts must be received by December 12.

We are also collecting food for holiday meals to give to our guests. Those can be submitted at any time. You'll find specific food ideas below. 

We prefer that donation items be new - we cannot take used clothing or toys due to storage limitations. 

Gift cards are an excellent option as well, as our guests can purchase items that are most appropriate for their needs. Merchant-issued gift cards are most useful; pre-paid debit cards, or bank-issued gift cards can have fees associated with use that place a financial burden on our guests as they use them. Please see the list below for some suggestions. 

If a financial contribution fits best with your budget or schedule, visit our Donation page to set up a one-time, or recurring donation.
