Holiday Wish List Items Needed

By Jessica Parker

During the holiday season, Cross Roads House presents each adult resident with a gift bag (families are sponsored separately). Please help us fill these gift bags by donating items from our Holiday Wish List below. In addition to providing gifts for our residents, financial donations are always needed to help fund shelter operations.

If you don’t have time to head out to the stores, you can shop our Amazon Wish List without leaving your home! To check out our Amazon wish list click here. Order items online and have your donation shipped directly to the shelter. Increase your impact by going to and choosing Cross Roads House as your charity of choice!

Thank you for your generosity during this season of giving.
