Shop from our Amazon wish list

Our youth, families, and communities always need hygiene products, cleaning supplies, and other everyday items. Help us meet these needs by making a purchase from our Amazon wish list below. Your purchase will be delivered directly to us, and if you order through AmazonSmile and set Lawrence Hall as your preferred charity, a percentage of your purchase total will be donated back to us at no cost to you.


In-kind drives

Throughout the year, we have various in-kind item drives to benefit our youth and families. From getting back-to-school ready to holiday wish lists, you can donate new items to help our youth and families.
