									Youth Shelters Donation Wish List, for fall 2011,
 as of the 13th of October
For donation questions, please call Rebecca Pike or Regina Romero 505.983.0586
or email them at rpike@youthshelters.org or rromero@youthshelters.org

We ALWAYS need non-perishable food donations, but as of the 13th of October 2011
we are most in need of non perishables for our all our programs and most especially lunch items for our Work Force
and Mom’s groups and GED programs.

We are in need of “Lunch Sponsors” for our WEI (Workforce Education Initiative program). The program begins Nov1
and the clients in this program will be spending ½ of the day in education programming and ½ of the day doing
service learning throughout the Santa Fe area. The clients will need lunch throughout the week and we are looking for
groups or individuals to help provide lunch for these clients. Sponsor a day each week and help our clients stay
healthy throughout their six month program. For more information call 983 0586 and ask for Roberta or Jesse.
