Attendees of a recent training session at Sandy Pines residential treatment center were asked to bring an item from Molly's House wish list for their registration. Items included spiral notebooks, non-perishable food, paper towels, toilet tissue and more.

It was a dream come true when Suzanne Drawdy and Heather Drye from the center showed up at Molly's House with bags and boxes of wish-list items last week.

"It was such a wonderful surprise," said Louise Murtaugh, executive director at Molly's House. "We were running low on a good number of items and Sandy Pines answered our need."

To provide the best experience for patients and their families who stay at Molly's House while receiving medical care on the Treasure Coast, the nonprofit asks the community to donate needed goods such as garbage bags and canned food to help lower costs.

Families use these products during their stays and the staff is thankful for such thoughtful donations.

Sandy Pines Residential Treatment Center provides children and adolescents the opportunity to confront their personal issues, engage in a problem-solving process, test new behaviors and formulate a more constructive approach to life's challenges. Every effort is made to create a safe and supportive environment in which to build on personal strengths and challenge destructive behaviors.

Drop off contributions anytime at Molly's House, 430 S.E. Osceola St., Stuart.

Call (772) 223-6659 for more information. The wish list can be found online at www.mollyshouse.org/index.php/wish-list.
