Stuff the Shuttle at the Donor Dash

Bring your donation of wish list items to this year's Donor Dash to help Stuff the Shuttle!


Gift of Life Howie’s House welcomes families going through the organ transplantation process to stay with us throughout the various stages of their journey. For more than 12 years, the House has been able to smooth the difficult and often unpredictable journeys of transplant families by providing them with affordable lodging, supportive services, and a place of comfort and stability.

At the House, we aim to maintain a supply of food and household goods for our guests. Keeping the House stocked requires a lot of donated food and supplies. This is where we need your help!
