Fairy merry Christmas: Use our annual nonprofit wish list to bring a little magic to local organizations: People’s Self-Help Housing - The Santa Maria Sun

BY SUN STAFF
With the swoosh of a wand, the Sun fairy godmothers would like to help poof nonprofit wishes into reality this holiday season. And unlike Cinderella, the wishes granted won’t disappear at midnight and won’t come in the form of a pumpkin carriage and some glass slippers—unless for some reason that’s on this holiday season’s wish list.

The needs expressed by local organizations range from the simple volunteer flick of a wand to the gigantic donating sweep of one. Take a gander at the fairytale dreams of a few and see which kind of wish-granting godmother you can be.
People’s Self-Help Housing
The goal of this organization is to provide affordable housing and programs that lead to self-sufficiency for low-income families, seniors, and other special needs groups on the Central Coast. People’s Self-Help Housing now has 44 affordable housing complexes with more than 5,000 low-income residents, including 1,500 residents in the Santa Maria Valley alone.
This holiday season, the organization is looking for new items that would improve the quality of life for residents in its low-income housing complexes. The list of needs includes:

• bed pillows
• blankets
• single sheet sets
• bath towels
• clothes hanger sets
• laundry baskets
• waste baskets
• lamps
• laundry detergent/supplies
• cleaning supplies
• grocery store gift cards
• gas gift cards
• bus passes
• diapers
• pull-over sweaters
• reading books for youth
