Brand new socks,gloves,winter coats, hoodies, hats,scarves, as well as used brand name items. Jeans,new undies,bras,sweats, etc. Blankets,bed sheets, dog bedding, dog blankets, dog/cat toys, food bowls, animal shampoo, 50lb,20lb,and 12lbs bags of pet food, kitty litter, leashes etc. There were lots of house cleaners,bleach,sponges,brushes, 300pairs of work gloves, toliet cleaners, floor cleaners etc. Glucometers, first aid products, medications such as cold meds,tylenol etc. Shoes, boots, children and baby clothing. Baby items and care products, diapers! Then don't forget the food items! Some store donated 200 loaves of bread, large boxes of stuffing, etc. Bobbi and John are also going to go buy turkey(s) with donation money. Many generously gave! Go Unity!
Unity a journey of hope works hard to provide a free service in this area. There literally are very few groups (if any) that grant wishes to adults with a life limiting or terminal illness. They also adopt a family for operation christmas wish and will work hard to fufill wishes of US veterans. This is a small local group with no big connections so you can imagine how hard they work to grant wishes that involve celebrities. The only payment they need is to see the smile on the wish recipients faces!

The founders of unity spend every waking moment and many hours of free time to try to make wishes possible and live up to their motto "changing 1 life 1 wish at a time." Unity grants wishes to adults 18 and older that have life limiting illness, free. They have granted over 60 wishes from meeting celebrities, to pulling together a real wedding in 3 days, to helping with obtaining medical supplies.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I recently gave the information to our d/c planner at the hospital I work at. We had a female 18 who was diagnosed with Huningtons Correa and life exp was 2yrs left to live. I hope the family uses the information to give her a happy day where she can be a happy 18yr old.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
