Wish List

The idea behind the Garden of Prayer Youth Center Wish List is simple. People find pleasure in giving gifts to others, especially things that might otherwise go to waste. Donors can claim a tax deduction on their taxes for contributions, and we all benefit by keeping things out of a landfill.

Once you identify an item you would like to donate, here's what to do:

  • You can contact us by telephone or by email to inform us of the item you would like for us to purchase on your behalf. Then make a donation via the PayPal link on our website home page.
  • You can drop off your monetary donation at our main office with instructions on what items from the wish list you would like for us to purchase on your behalf.
  • You can purchase an item on the wish list and drop it off at our office or contact us by phone or by email and request that we pick up the wish list from the location of your choice.

You will receive a written acknowledgment/receipt and thank-you letter within 30 days of submitting your contribution. Keep this letter on file for when you file your tax returns. If you don't receive an acknowledgment within 30 days, please contact us.
