DONATION WISH LIST

NRCA’S DONATION WISH LIST

Many local citizens and businesses contribute thousands of items to NRCA annually.  Without their support, NRCA would not be able to assist the low-income citizens of the New River Valley as they currently do.  These generous donations (of materials, volunteer time and money) are greatly appreciated by each NRCA program and truly do make a difference.   All donations are tax-deductible.  Your assistance will help our agency to continue offering the variety of meaningful programs that help low-income people reach their potential.  Your efforts will have a positive impact.   Thank you very much for your support!
