Why can’t I donate myself to the shelter?
You can! Wish for W.A.R.M. just simplifies the process by our team meeting with the area homeless shelters, missions and kitchens to identify their specific needs and we bring community together to provide them.
Does Wish for W.A.R.M. make any money on this?
NO! We are all volunteers at Wish for W.A.R.M. with the single goal of bringing community together to warm our homeless during the frigid Winter months.
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.
