Holiday Programs

Help Make the Holidays Special

The holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Chanukah – are typically joyful celebrations, but for domestic violence survivors, they can bring many challenges. The Women’s Center has been blessed with many members, supporters and friends. Every year, dozens of people and organizations donate food and gifts to our clients so that they and their children can enjoy a holiday meal and celebrate together.

Some people give gift cards to area stores so that the parents can do their own shopping. Others “adopt” families, get lists, and do the shopping for them. There are several groups who forego their own gift-giving so they may give to others.

If you would like to adopt a family, deliver a food basket, give costumes or candy for Halloween, or make a cash donation, please contact the center.

Thanksgiving Basket Donations

Each year we reach out to nearly 100 families in need with donated gifts and food baskets. 2016 Thanksgiving Basket Drive information.
