amazon wish list here 

We would welcome books for all ages (Pre-K through young adult). The kids particularly enjoy graphic novels and we have been expanding our collection of books written by Black authors and/or with Black protagonists. Multiple copies are welcome as we encourage kids to take books with them when they transition.

Legos are also always popular too, particularly the bigger blocks for younger kids. PJ Masks, Slime-making and Emoji anything are popular. In case you wanted a few ideas but of course, we welcome any items.
