In-Kind Giving

Before purchasing supplies, please consider that a monetary donation can go much further because the VHS may have a greater buying power as a nonprofit organization. Our most urgent need is always monetary donations. 

If you do purchase supplies, please make note of specific brands that are needed to ensure your gift is as helpful as possible!
