Below are the Wish Lists for our Family Shelters with the items needed at The Austin Shelter for Women and Children and The Rathgeber Center for Families in Austin. We currently have close to 100 children living at our two family shelters. As summer approaches, we need new clothing for the children, however we are currently unable to accept any used clothing items.
To help you shop from home, or give you ideas on what we need, we have set up an Amazon list for each shelter and a Walmart list that includes items both shelters need. You can see the lists at the links below. If you shop from the Rathgeber Family Center Amazon list, all items are shipped directly to them. If shopping from the Austin Shelter for Women & Children Amazon list, all items are shipped directly to them. Items from the Walmart list will be split evenly among the two shelters.
You can also make a monetary donation by mailing a check to The Salvation Army, 4700 Manor Rd, Austin, TX 78723 or donate online and we will shop for you. If you wish to shop locally, please do not deliver your items to a shelter until you contact Donna Clendennen to coordinate location delivery.
