OBS Dana Program

Here is a list of the following food and household related items that are needed by the Tisarana community at this time . . .

This list is in order of what is needed most right now. Our needs can change frequently because our stores of food (especially perishables) can sometimes be low in the morning and full by the afternoon and then low again a week later. We try to keep the list as up to date as possible.
