Sheltering Wings announces wish list

Sheltering Wings is a domestic violence shelter in Hendricks County for women and their dependent children, supported in large part by the community. Organizers often have people wanting to donate to the cause, but because of limited storage space, they ask that anyone wanting to help learn what is needed at that particular time.

Immediate needs include manila folders, postage stamps, aluminum foil, large trash bags, toilet paper, Clorox/Lysol cleaning wipes, hairspray, and gift cards for gas or for Lowe’s and Walmart.

The shelter cannot accept used clothing but there is a clothing drive held through Northview Christian Church in Danville. At this time, the church is now accepting children’s/baby clothing or toys. They also do not accept cribs, used computers, printers, ink cartridges, eyeglasses, or televisions. Donations will be accepted from 5 to 7 p.m. March 20 at the church.

The ongoing clothing drive normally held by HIP Studios in Brownsburg will continue at the home of Sabrina Gossett, 1258 Spring Lake Drive, Brownsburg. Items may be left at the front door, but donors are asked not to ring the doorbell. Used cell phones are accepted but accessories such as chargers and cases are not.

Vehicles may also be donated to Sheltering Wings. To make a donation, call (855) 811-8924 or visit the website at www.uwci.org/autodonation.

Sheltering Wings has partnered with Energizing Indiana to offer Residential Home Energy Assessments. The assessments can help raise a home’s performance, lower energy bills, and improve in-home air quality. It only takes one hour and every household that completes a Home Energy Assessment will receive a comprehensive report and a free Energy Savings Kit. In addition, Sheltering Wings will receive $25 per completed assessment. Those funds will be designated for the recent Capital Campaign.

There are also monthly sponsorships available to help support the shelter. The sponsors already on board are Danville Auto & Tire Service, monthly Vectren bill; Ray’s Trash, monthly trash pickup and shredding; Aqua Systems, water and salt; Rick Bradford, Internet bill; IU West Health Hospital, outreach; and Safe Hiring Solutions, background screenings.

Other monthly sponsorships are also available. One example will be to sponsor the monthly cell phone bill for the agency.
