Donations for teens are especially needed and items such as Word search, crossword or Sudoku puzzle books are suggested as well as Head phones or ear buds, journals, and craft kits are highly recommended as well as Gift Cards in small denominations ($5 to $10).
“We are very excited to participate as a collection center for this worthy cause” said Patrick Haynes, VP of Haynes Materials, Collection boxes are conveniently set up and we are here to help.”
