Needs List

NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the St. Francis House has had to place limits on donated items during the present time. For the time being the only donated items we will accept are: food, personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, cleaning wipes, bleach, etc. We are unable to accept donations of clothing or household items. We will let you know when we are able to resume accepting all donated items. Thank you for your understanding.
