Hats
Gloves
Scarves
New socks for men, women, and children. 
 
MHVI will gladly accept gently used items. They only ask that if items are used, that they are washed before we distribute them-especially to children.

If you need additional lockboxes, you can come to the GMAR office: 12300 W. Center St., Wauwatosa, M-F 8:30am-5:00pm. We will need to verify that you have an active listing so please either bring your signed listing contract or make sure it is showing in the MLS.
