Please check out our charity wish list on Amazon Smile to easily order items needed at the shelter and save yourself a trip. Let us know when you place an order as they usually don't contain the name of the donor, so we don't know who to thank. Please be sure to login to Smile.Amazon.com and designate Rainbow Place Shelter before you place your order.
The shelter could also use monetary donations for general operating expenses and to use as needs arise.

Approximately 30% of our annual budget comes from in-kind donations.
Monetary donations are used for facility maintenance, staff funding, to purchase food, paper, cleaning products, shelter supplies, postage stamps, and bus tokens.
Gift Cards to Costco and Staples are always helpful and appreciated.
