- Prescriptions and emergency medications

- Foods that meet unusual dietary requirements

- Extra clothing, pillows, blankets, hygiene supplies and other comfort items

- Supplies needed for children and infants, such as diapers, formula and toys

- Special items for family members who are elderly or disabled
