Urgent Need

for the Week

Uber Gift Cards

One of our residents recently started a new job! This will be a big step towards sustainability for her family, but we need your help to make that happen! The bus route will take her from work, but the timing to work doesn't match her shift or daycare. We are asking for donations of Uber gift cards to help pay for her transportation to work until she can purchase a car or sort out a more sustainable transportation plan!



Purchase items on our Amazon wish list

The easiest way to donate supplies is through our Amazon Wish List. Simply purchase any listed items from Amazon and they will be sent directly to Clare House.
