The intern village is open to the possibility of any and all donations, including categories not listed above.  Please call the Institute before shipping or dropping off any donations.  We make every attempt to take only what we need and if it's an item we already have, we'd prefer you to share your generosity with others.  Thank you for your support of our internship program!
