Wishing Star could not do the work that it does without the support of generous donors. Whether you choose to become a monthly donor or help us with our wish list, there are many ways to give. Learn more about how you can give.


City Thrift

City Thrift in Coeur d’Alene has partnered with Wishing Star by pledging all of the net proceeds from donations to fund wishes. Consider donating your unwanted clothing items, accessories, books, housewares and furniture to City Thrift.
