Our Wish List

At the Emily Center, we share a passion for helping children, families, care providers and others throughout the region. We give children and others access to reliable, personalized and easy-to-understand health information when they need it most. We strive to make learning fun and exciting for kids of all ages.

The Emily Center relies on the generosity of donors. They include friends and organizations who give generously to make this work possible. We appreciate individual and group donations. You can donate new books and multimedia educational resources, financial contributions or other forms of support. 

We thank you for your ongoing encouragement and support. Gifts of any size are always welcome and appreciated.
