Wish Lists for LSS Programs

Our programs work hard to provide our clients with all of their basic needs as well as some of the comforts of home every day. You can help by donating these much-appreciated items to the program of your choice. Here are the wish lists of our most needed items. Please note items must be delivered directly to program locations. We are unable to accept items at our corporate office in Worthington.

LSS Faith Mission Wish List

We’re excited to announce there will be upcoming changes to the LSS in kind donation center. Our donation drop-off location and hours will be changing, effective Jan 15. As we prepare for this update, the center will be closed from Dec 24 – Jan 14, and we will not be accepting donations during that time.

After the holidays, updates will be available on this web page. Thank you for your patience as we make this transition!
