Some examples of items are gift cards for CVS, Target, Friendly’s, grocery stores etc. For mothers in the shelters some items would include bath products, socks, cosmetics, nail polish, hair products, phone cards, journals, postage stamps etc. Items for children should be age appropriate from crayons, coloring books and non-violent toys to bath and hair products, to books and diaries.
