Wishlists

Won’t you help make our wishes come true?

Frequently folks will ask us, “What do you need?”

Naturally, the wish list for a 365-day and residential school is quite comprehensive – everything from sports and therapeutic equipment to art materials and home furnishings. Below are some key items on our list. Some cost as little as a few dollars, but to us, whatever you can give is priceless.

If you or your organization think you might have resources that may benefit our school, do not hesitate to contact Ricky DeSisto at (781) 829-1289.
