Your donations can make wishes come true.
The Community Wishbook is a guide to the needs of more than 200 charitable organizations in Rochester and the surrounding area. It includes each charity’s contact information, purpose, wish lists, and volunteer needs. Individuals, groups, or businesses can use the Wishbook to find charities that need their donated items or volunteer help. For updates throughout the year, see the Wishbook website at www.communitywishbook.com. A special thanks to our sponsors, Messenger Post Media (publisher of Post Newspapers) and MVP Health Care, for their many years of support in bringing the Wishbook to you. The Community Wishbook was originated in 1966 by the Volunteer Forum and the American Red Cross. The Junior League of Rochester Inc. (JLR) took over the reins of the Wishbook in 1985. From 1993 through 1996, the JLR collaborated with the Greater Rochester Section of the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) in organizing the Wishbook. Since 1999, Nona and Jim Maurer, community volunteers have assumed responsibility for producing the Wishbook. They have contacted the agencies and organized the information for this year's edition. For more information about the Wishbook, please visit www.communitywishbook.com.

1. Find your favorite charity to see if they need your donated items or volunteer skill – OR use one of the Index sections to find an agency that needs what you have to offer. Check the agency's information in the alphabetical Agency Listings for details. 2. To volunteer, search the Volunteers Needed Index for the category that matches your interest, skill, or talent. Use the alphabetical Agency Listings to find the contact person at the charity. Call or email the contact person directly to apply for the volunteer position or to get more information. 3. If you have items to donate, search the Items Needed Index to find charities that need them. Again, use the alphabetical Agency Listings to find the contact person at the agency, and call or email that person directly to make arrangements for delivery or pickup. Please be sure that all donated items are clean, useable, and do not have any missing pieces or pages (puzzles, games, books, etc.) Contributions are tax deductible to the extent the law allows. (Include your name and address.) 4. Please let the charity know that the match was made using the Wishbook. There is no charge to the charities for any of the Wishbook services, but we (and they) would appreciate knowing the Wishbook is working for them. 5. Wishbook information is also available online at www.communitywishbook.com. Online listings are updated as changes are received from the charities. You can search online by item, by volunteer need, or by agency to help make a difference at any time during the year.
