STORIES 2021 Winter Wish List – Give to Others this Season!


Support students at Iowa State University in the STORIES program who have experienced foster care, homelessness, or similar situations with extraordinary challenges by providing a gift this holiday season!

The students in the program have put together an Amazon wish list. All gifts were picked out by the students and will directly support the students in the STORIES program. When gifts arrive, they’ll be anonymously given to the student who wished for the item.

Or, if you would like to make a donation that is not from the Amazon Wish List, gift cards of any kind are always useful to our students. You can contact Laura Kilbride at for non-Amazon donations.

Please have gifts purchased by Dec. 31, 2021. However, any gifts received after that will still be given to students.
