Needs List

Donating Needs List Items are a great way to help Mom’s House. These items are critical in providing our parents with everyday essentials so that they can focus solely on the well-being of their child. When you donate from our Needs List, you are helping single parents move towards financial independence.
Only new and unexpired items will be accepted for the health and safety of our families. Environmentally friendly products are appreciated. You can also purchase items on our Amazon Wish List for an easy way to ensure we receive exactly what we need. Please be sure to include your name and contact information to acknowledge your donation.

Due to our generous Christmas donations, we are very well-stocked. Since we have limited space, please consider a financial donation in lieu of other donation materials.

If you have any questions please call 717-396-9130
