The Wish List program seeks donations of new toys and clothing for children in the YWCA's Domestic Violence Shelter and the families of recently sheltered women who are struggling to rebuild their lives.

Donations of new, unwrapped toys and clothing can be delivered to the YWCA Dayton administrative offices at 141 W.

Monetary donations are always welcome and checks payable to YWCA Dayton can be mailed to 141 W. Third St., Dayton, OH 45402.

Toys collected for the Wish List program continue to create smiles throughout the year.
