BITS Bags Assembly

Our team of regular volunteers are hard at work assembling BITS Bags! These bags contain age appropriate toys for infants and toddlers that will provide stimulation to help development. They will be going out to many local families in need soon.

If you’re interested in donating BITS Bags, you can find more info here https://www.thewishproject.org/bits-bags/

If you’re interested in helping provide more light for these volunteers to see what they’re doing in our basement, you can find Lori’s wish here https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/D0WB109LX427?ref_=wl_share

Working Together to Help the Homeless

Regular volunteers Anne and Pam fold and pack up warm blankets for Patricia and Judy to pick up. They will then be distributed to the homeless population living on the local streets.
By working together, we are able to take care of the most in need. Thank you to the generous donors who made this possible.

BITS Bag donations are coming it!

Thank you Cassandra Floor and Gotta Dance Dance Studio for the donation of puzzles for our BITS bags. These super cute puzzles will go in the bags, along with bubbles, crayons, a coloring book, a beach ball, tub toys, a book, and a new baby toy and given to local families in need with small children. These parents are often not able to provide their children with age appropriate toys for stimulation, and these children are at a greater risk for developmental delay. Our goal is to give these bags to every family needing them to help aid in their children’s development.
If you’re interested in getting involved with this project, email lori@thewishproject.org
If you’re interested in donating items, or complete bags, you can drop off at the warehouse Tuesday-Saturday 9-2:45.
If you prefer to shop online, check out our Amazon wish list for this project https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3D8J9PW9D8DI2?ref_=wl_share

Rob Rests Up

Check out super volunteer Rob! He picked up two couches today from a local person looking to downsize. Not only did he pick up and deliver to us, but he also vacuumed the couch to get it in perfect shape to go out to the next client needing couches! You deserve the rest break!

Donation Staff Thanks

Thank You Patty!

Patty may have retired, but her love for The Wish Project is still very apparent. She stopped by the warehouse to drop off the community bags that she purchased at Stop and Shop, to support the fundraiser for The Wish. She also not only purchased the staff favorites gift card bundle at our Winter Wishes Open Your Heart Online Auction, but she gifted them back to the staff. We can all now enjoy a meal at our favorite local spots!! Thank you, Patty, for your never ending kindness and generosity.
