DASAS could not function without the constant support of our community. We accept all donations that are so graciously given.
Below we have a list of items that are in the greatest need; our 'Wish List.'
We are always in need of gift cards for gas or groceries.
Soap, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorant, lotion, mouthwash, and toothpaste are always needed. Feminine hygiene items are also needed as they are in high demand. We also need disposable razors, brushes, combs, lip balm, denture cleaner, nail clippers and files, talcum & foot powder in addition to facial and toilet tissue.
Antacid, bandages, buffered aspirin, cotton swabs, cough medicine and lozenges, latex/medical gloves, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and rubbing alcohol.

We also need coffee, creamer, tea, soda, juices, cereal, snack foods (nutrition bars, cheese crackers, etc.), condiments, gravy, peanut butter, jelly, sugar, salt, pepper, pancake mix, loaves of bread, pasta, sauces, and soups. We can also accept some quantities of perishable goods. Luncheon meats, hot dogs, and cheese are items we could use as well.
