TLC Needs List

This list changes from time to time and we have needs that sometimes arise unexpectedly. We thank you for ALL of your support and efforts in whatever resources you can provide. You are making a big difference in the lives of so many.

It is helpful if the donated items would be brought in reusable tote bags or plastic bins, those can also be give to the participants for personal use/storage.


Donated items can be dropped off at the TLC Front Desk, 105 E. King Street, Lancaster, PA 17602. If you have any questions about donated items, please call Phyllis Stacks at (717) 358-9383 or email
