Wish List for St. Vincent’s Villa

St. Vincent’s Villa is a therapeutic residential facility for the treatment of children aged 6-14 with behavioral and emotional difficulties. We strive to provide the highest level of care for our children and we couldn’t do it without our generous donors.

We can always use your help.

The Things We Need Most, In Priority Order Are:

  • DONATIONS (You can make your online donation here.) This is the best way to help the Center overall.
  • VOLUNTEERS (Learn more about volunteering with us here.)
  • GIFT CARDS (from food stores, Walmart and Target). These give us the most flexibility for filling immediate needs.
  • IN-KIND DONATIONS, such as the items listed below. Please consider increasing the impact of your gift by organizing a donation drive.


  • Bike helmets in youth and adult sizes (new only)
  • Knee and elbow pads (new)
  • Current video games (rated E for Everyone) for Xbox, Playstation 3 & 4, Wii and Wii U
  • Personal CD platers with headphones and extra headphones
  • New Legos, especially small kits
  • Sports equipment: Basketballs, Footballs, Soccer Balls, Kickballs, Ball pumps, Jump ropes
  • New arts and crafts supplies like colored pencils, markers (especially skin tone colors), acrylic paints, beads, stickers, kits, coloring books. construction paper, etc.
  • New current books, especially Junie B Does, Magic Treehouse, Step into Reading, joke books, and books about animals, sports, and current TV shows
  • Activity and coloring books
  • Digital watches
  • Stickers

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we currently have an overwhelming supply of hats, gloves, scarves, and Barbie dolls and are not in need of these items. We cannot accept toy weapons (including Nerf guns), and food item donations must be approved by the Volunteer Services Department PRIOR to donating. Also, due to health regulations, we are only able to accept donations of NEW toys and clothing.

Please keep in mind that a majority of the children we serve are over age 10, so toys for preteens and clothing in adult sizes are most useful.
