Wish List Donations
Unrestricted monetary gifts are of the greatest need; however, if you would like to purchase particular items of necessity, we are currently in need of gift cards for incoming residents. Gift cards from Target, Kohl’s and Wal-Mart are preferred. Other gift-in-kind donations are accepted on an as needed basis. For a current wish list, click here.

Unfortunately, due to regulations and staffing limitations, Epworth cannot accept used clothing, linens, toys or stuffed animals. In addition, we have a sufficient amount of school supplies. Check back here regularly for a complete list of items needed.


Volunteers have a very special place at Epworth. Volunteer service includes a broad range of areas. Some opportunities are designed to build healthy relationships with children, other projects may be focused on creating a strong foundation for the program, while others focus on grounds and building maintenance. Many individuals and groups are needed throughout the year to assist Epworth in meeting the needs of our children and program.  Read More about the Volunteer Program.
