Our Wish List

Making a Daily Difference in Kids’ Lives

The children in CEDARS care, like all kids, need a warm bed, good food, and clothes on their backs. But they need even more. CEDARS gratefully accepts donations of new, sealed personal care products and other items as we have need. Due to allergy issues of some of the kids in our care, we request that donated items come from non-smoking homes.

We’ve been blessed! Our friends have been so very generous and our storage closet is absolutely bursting with new clothing and other items for the kids. Therefore, at this time, if you are wishing to donate clothing, please call Tracy at 402-437-8820. We genuinely appreciate your kindness and support.
