Amazon Wishlist Makes Donating a Breeze

Amazon Wishlist Makes Donating A Breeze


Thanks to the opening of the new Little Sunshine store at our Flagship location in Brooklyn, our youth have been able to shop for needed items at no cost to them. They can pick up everyday necessities such as hygiene products and clothes, as well as books, toys, and games. However, most of the donated items are for younger children. To balance the scales, we started an Amazon Wishlist with older youth in mind. This list includes shoes, menstrual products, hair care, gender affirming items, clothing, gift cards, and more.

Please consider donating an item or two through this link, and help make a youth’s day.
