View Auction Items NOW! Bidding starts February 8th!

At our "Winter Wishes Open Your Heart" online auction, February 8th - 11th, there will be lots of auction items perfect for gift giving for your special Valentine! 

Like many non profit organizations, in person fundraisers are still not possible. Because of this, we will be turning to technology to make our biggest fundraiser of the year possible. This years Winter Wishes will look different from years past, but we are so excited!  We will be having an on-line auction February 8th-11th with a Valentine's theme.  Purchased items can be picked up before Valentine's Day for easy gifting!  We have gone out of our way to include the usual items that people always love - gift baskets, gift certificates, lottery tickets, etc., but we have also included several very fun and different items! 
All proceeds go to support our mission, which has never been needed more than it has during this time of COVID.  

This year, The Wish Project has supplied clients with thousands of face masks, paper products, hand sanitizer, and household cleaning kits and hundreds of headphones, for children to use while home schooling - these things were not planned!  But we are able to make it happen thanks to the hard work of staff and volunteers and our generous donors.

All auction items are available to view NOW! Check out our link and make your lists, because bidding starts Monday February 8th at 9am!


The Covid pandemic has drastically increased the need for basic items for many local families.

We are continuing to rely on our generous donors who make it possible for us to provide clients with the items that they need. Donors like Kelly and J, who stopped by the warehouse with a truck load of donations. They told Mel how they once received help from others, and that help led them to want to pay it forward. Because of their generous donations, two families are able to put their babies to bed in a safe crib, and another family is able to safely transport their baby in an infant car seat. 
Thank you Kelly and J for paying it forward. The families who received your baby items are so grateful for your donations.
