Because our new Richmond Hill location consists of 19 separate buildings, donors are being offered the opportunity to name a building. For $200,000, you can leave a lasting legacy. Within our new warehouse, you can also fund and name specific departments where products are made. These $200,000 contributions can be made with a three- to four-year pledge.
