Rochester's Charity Giving Guide
Rochester's Community Wishboo provides a central source for Rochester NY-area charities to list their Items Needed and Volunteer Needs, as well as Special Events that help the agencies raise funds.
1. Use the listings to find a charity that needs your donated item or volunteer skill.
2. Follow the link to the agency's page, and call or email the agency to arrange for delivery or pickup of a listed item, or for details on volunteering.
