Wish List




Home Away provides school supplies and clothing to the children we serve. Gift certificates are distributed at milestone academic achievements, or as holiday gifts. We also always need new books, cooking supplies, toys and games, and various other items that it takes to run our two 'home away' facilities and provide outdoor educational opportunities in the summer. Contact Freddy Eberhardt, Fundraising Coordinator (admin@homeaway.org) to make a donation from the wishlist in person, or order online to be shipped to us.
