  • Boxers and plain white under t-shirts (boys and adult sizes)

Gift cards to Walmart or Target are truly appreciated, as they provide the children with the opportunity to experience a sense of independence and a way to express their individuality through shopping for their own clothing. In addition, they also learn important lessons about budgeting and making decisions.
