Make a Donation

The Wiregrass Children’s Home is in continuous need of donations.  Items as simple as household goods, canned food, gas cards, hygiene products, back-to-school outfits and school supplies are always in high demand.  Our “Needs and Dreams” list is continuously updated.

Making a difference in the life of our children can be as simple as contributing one of the following amounts:

  • $25 – Provides a new pair of shoes or a week’s worth of meals for one child
  • $35 – Provides a year’s worth of school supplies for one child in elementary school
  • $45 – Provides a new back-to-school outfit for one teenage child
  • $50 – Provides 14 days of formula for an infant
