WISH LIST

NEEDS DURING COVID-19 OUTBREAK

We are looking for extra donations to support our friends during this outbreak. For many of them, even the places they normally use the restroom, such as the libraries, are closed. Many of the places where they usually can take a shower or get new clothing are also closed.

  • Gift Cards to Restaurants ($10-$15 amounts) 
    • Easy to handout and helps ensure our friends receive hot meals. A great way to also help restaurants stay in business.
    • Downtown Restaurants, such as: Panera, Chipotle, McDonalds, Caribou Coffeee, Snooze, Lazo Empanada, Hopdoddy Burgers, The Delectable Egg, The Corner Cafe.
  • Grocery store gift cards for the missionaries such as Costco, King Supers, and Safeway. The missionaries primarily rely off of food donations. When donations are low, gift cards are especially helpful to provide healthy food for the missionaries.
  • Bottled water/sports drinks
  • Hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes
  • Bus passes
  • Donations for hotel stays (often averages $70/night)
  • Food which we can easily hand out to avoid creating crowds. Prepackaged or preboxed foods are ideal
  • Socks (long preferred) and other basic clothing items.

    Please contact Alison at alison@christinthecity.org if interested.
