In November 2011, the Lifestyle staff published a Nonprofit Wish List. We asked area nonprofits to submit a list of tangible items that could be used to help further their missions. When we published the lists, we then asked the community, in return, to help out the organizations by giving something on the list. We would love to say that every single one of the nearly 80 nonprofits had their wishes granted, but we know that was unrealistic.
