Making ends meet is never easy. At Pomeroy, we work very hard to provide all we can to our clients, and yet at day's end we are left WISHING for just a few more basic things to help give our clients the best life possible. Here are some of the things that will help us do just that - contact us if you have any questions or to plan a delivery/drop-off:
Macs / iPads in good shape to take on the many apps we use
Batteries: AA, AAA, C, D
Adult belts universal styles & sizes
Adult pull-ups - ALL SIZES* - click to purchase on Amazon
Mens swim suit new or used with pull strings
Women's swim suits
Swim Towels (like these you can get through AmazonSmile)
Arts & Craft supplies: water color paper pads (11x14,18x24), all color drawing markers, clear wrap – large roll, aluminum foil – large roll, all color yarn, aluminum basting pans, colored pencils, glue, clay, tempura paint, electric clay wheels, paint brushes, clean-up sponges, paper mache paste, clay glazes, construction paper and popsicle sticks.
Artist Aprons - any color, knee-length, pockets are great
* We are also open to taking "leftovers" from hospices, care facilities, etc. Keep us in mind when cleaning up.
WE LOVE COZY PANTS!
Accidents happen ... but mostly we are concerned that our friends are clean and comfortable when they do. Please help by donating sweatpants, elastic waist or drawstring pants in sizes Medium - Extra Large. Here are some at AmazonSmile where we can get a percentage of your purchase as well!
RESIDENTIAL HOUSES SEEKING
A FEW MORE HOME COMFORTS
Pomeroy currently houses 11 adults with developmental disabilities in two amazing San Francisco homes. Here are a few items you might have laying around that really would make life even better!
BBQ (small black ball grill would work wonders)
Bike (we have one good bike and one so so) or bring your own bike for the ride
Elliptical trainer x 2
SKOOGS & SKWITCHES
Fascinating new musical devices made specifically with folks with different abilities in mind - and we would love to add some to our instrument collection.
ADAPTIVE XBOX CONTROLLER
Might as well dream BIG, right? In the video above, our hero Zach Anner hilariously tries his hand at gaming against a pro. A pair of these Controllers would be a big hit with our Children & Teens, for certain. XBOX Website
XBOX 3 / GAMING CONSOLES
Our Abled Gamers Class would greatly benefit from having multiple consoles. Next time you upgrade, remember us!
WE LIKE BIG VISUALS
AND WE CANNOT LIE
Sharing information and entertainment with large groups at once is key at Pomeroy. We sure could use a few new projectors for use in our main hall, conference and classrooms. Here is one on AmazonSmile* that is well-reviewed and affordable.
*When you shop online at AmazonSmile, you can select Pomeroy Center as a beneficiary of a portion of your purchases!
