Wish List

Our Wish List of items are needed to supplement the various needs of our clients during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Due to supply shortages and financial uncertainties, these high-need items are now more essential than ever. 

With health and safety as our top priorities, all donation deliveries are by appointment only and we can only accept items on the Wish List at this time. Please contact Tim Ruis, Director of Activities & Volunteers, Tim.ruis@servingseniors.org or (619) 487-0727 to schedule a donation delivery.

Thank you for helping us fulfill our wish list of items and supporting the community in a time of need! Learn more about our pandemic response efforts by visiting our COVID-19 Updates page.

Happiness thrives, but still needs your help. Many older adults would benefit from friendly connections during this deeply isolating time. The health impacts of loneliness are significant. Please consider writing letters, notes of encouragement or drawings. This can be a great at-home activity for youth and helps deepens intergenerational connections. Cheerful messages from all ages are encouraged! 

Drop-off cards: For health and safety reasons, appointments are required to drop-off all donations, including letters. Please contact Tim Ruis, Director of Activities & Volunteers, Tim.ruis@servingseniors.org or 619-487-0727 to schedule a drop-off time.
