The Neely House Wish List - Summer/Fall 2016

For the past nearly 19 years, the kindness and thoughtful generosity of those who have donated has been greatly appreciated by our staff and more importantly, all the families residing at The Neely House.  The support of all who have donated has given such comfort at the most difficult times in the lives of families living with cancer.  We are truly grateful!

The Foundation is currently in its 21st year in existence and The Neely House is in its 19th.  During this time, we have provided a home for more than 6,500 families and affected the lives of thousands of cancer patients and their families in various ways. We take such good care of our House, the families living in it and the furnishings but things do wear out so we are in need of some new items.

The following is a list of items needed for The Neely House.  Please call Kate Adamson, The Neely House Manager, at 617-346-5900 if you have items to donate or questions. Kate will help you make arrangements for delivery to the proper location.
