Wish List

Thanks to people like you, wishes do come true! In kind donations provide invaluable support to SPAN clients and staff. All non-financial donations must be set up by appointment by contacting our Facilities/ Donations Manager, Kirstine Raynor at 720-382-7181 or an email.

**Please note: City ordinances prohibit leaving donations on the porch of our building. Please call the office to schedule an appointment between 9 am and 5 pm Monday-Friday.

Because Safehouse’s facility is short on storage space, we don’t have the ability to accept all donations. Below, you’ll see the frequently updated items that we are always in need of for our clients and program. You can be assured that we will gratefully accept anything from this list. Bolded items are currently the most needed. Prior to dropping off, please call us at 303.449.8623 to set up a time.
