Think about where teens like to shop or what teens like. Maybe ask a teen that you know where they like to shop or what they would suggest. Some suggestions are:
- Body wash
- Tooth paste and tooth brush
- Body spray
- Fuzzy Blanket/fuzzy socks
- Items with motivational words on them like journals or signs to decorate a teen’s room (non-denominational)
- Gift cards to places that teens like to shop(Old Navy, Hollister, American Eagle, anyplace that has a Juniors section etc…) Ask a teen you know where they like to shop.
Our focus is teens, but ACCESS also always needs items for younger children as well including: diapers, formula, new or gently used clothes for children of all ages, car seats and gift cards for emergency placement.
Another item that may be needed or helpful are gently used or new books especially with encouraging words or uplifting themes. Again ask a child or teen what their favorite book is and what they would like to read themselves. Think about what your favorite book was when you were young.
