Our Wish List for Children

Approximately 1,000 children are served every day through our programs in Council Bluffs and Sioux City, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska.

Our “Wish List” has items that help provide a special activity or experience for our children.  From time to time, these lists will change.

If you would like to help by providing one or more of these items, you may purchase and bring them to the Lemen Visitor Center at the Council Bluffs campus.

Your support is greatly appreciated!  Thank you!
