We are deeply thankful to all who donate “gifts in kind” to support Glenmary and those we serve. The following are some items that members of our small, rural missions and residents of our mission counties can use—and some items that typically cannot be put to good use. 

Often, it saves time and money if donors can ship donations directly to the missions. Should you wish to do so, please contact me at 513-881-7440 for shipping addresses or to inquire about items not listed here. You can also check our Glenmary Web site ( for quarterly wish-list updates. Thank you!
