Holiday Gift Drive 2017

The holidays are upon us, and you know what that means - it's time for our Holiday Gift Drive!

Each year, we hold a gift drive to ensure that the families we serve enjoy the holidays together as they move forward and heal from domestic abuse. Celebrate the season and share the spirit of giving by supporting our clients through our Holiday Gift Drive and our Adopt-A-Family program.

Donations for safe haven families can be anything from the wish list below and do not require prior registration. To donate gifts for a family as part of our Adopt-A-Family program, fill out our online request form in order to receive your family's wish list for gifts

 

All gifts should be unwrapped and new. 

Donations for the Holiday Gift Drive must be dropped off at 100 South Broad St, Suite 1341 on Monday - Friday, from 10 am to 5 pm.

The gift drive ends December 14th.
