Why doesn’t the homeless shelter set up their own wish list page?

Some shelters operate their own wish list programs. Unfortunately, so many homeless shelters. missions and kitchens are lacking the volunteer help and resources to keep up with maintaining a wish list program. Wish for W.A.R.M., provides the volunteers to operate a community platform to help support those smaller grass root – boot strap homeless shelters.
