FOR AGENCIES:  ANNUAL UPDATE

All agencies are now being asked to update their information, or to confirm that it is correct.

In the email that announces this year's update, the first link to this website is broken. Please do not use the link just after the "It's Easy" heading. The correct web address is www.communitywishbook.org.

 

SPECIAL OFFER for Agencies:

We at the Wishbook received this very generous offer for furniture from RIT

 

My name is Ethan Koval, and I am the Program Director of Goodbye Goodbuy, RITs Move Out Program. Currently, there are hundreds of high quality furniture items at RIT that will soon be thrown out. We have been finding places to donate it, but we simply have too many items for the connections we have in the city. Would it be possible to make a public post advertising this on Community Wishbook?

Please contact Mr Koval at Ekoval88@outlook.com if you are interested.
Thank you!

  About the Printed Wishbook:
Stocks of the 2017-18 print version have diminished at local free-literature racks. Some local library branches may have a supply. MP Media, sponsor and publisher the printed version, has agreed to publish the print version again this year.  Ronald McDonald House was also a repeat sponsor.
Agencies: You will soon be receiving an email request from the Wishbook staff asking you to confirm that your information is correct. Please follow directions in that letter, and send us a return note if you want to continue your listing (even if your listing is OK). 

If you need a copy, or multiple copies of the previous 2017-2018 print version, please send an email with your address & quantity to wishbook@rochester.rr.com.

Thanks to all who have donated items or volunteered their time to help a local charity.
