Wish List for Elders

At St Luke’s Home, we ensure our Elders are taken care of with comfortable housing, 24/7 medical assistance, and three delicious meals a day, but they still have limited means to shop for personal items and entertainment. Consider an in-kind donation based on the needs and qualifications below.

With your gift, please include a note with your name, phone number, email, and postal address so we can send you a tax-deductible receipt and properly thank you for your gift.

Delivering Donations

We do not have the means to pick up donations at this time. Please bring your gifts to our front door at 615 E Adams St. You do not need an appointment. We have limited staff after hours. Please try to bring your donations during operating hours M-F 8:00 – 4:00 if you can, but weekends and evenings are available if necessary.

Medical Equipment

Maybe, please email first. Wheelchairs, walkers, shower chairs etc – Sometimes we need these, but have limited storage space for excess.


No, thank you. We recently received a generous donation of furniture from Home Instead and Sam Levitz. We do not have any need for furniture items at this time and have no room for storage of excess.


Maybe, please email first as we have limited needs. Must be clean and in good condition- no stains, rips etc.


No, thank you. We currently do not need any of the below.
