Holiday Gift Express

The holidays can be a difficult time for families dealing with the effects of sexual and domestic violence. You can help brighten the holiday season for our clients by donating to our "2016 Holiday Gift Express."  This holiday season, clients will be invited to our office -- which we transform into a mini-toy store -- to select gifts for their children. The children also get to choose something for their parent/guardian!


This year, we are hoping to give the gift of choice to our teens and adults by having a variety of GIFT CARDS from which they can choose.  You can also make a financial donation in our form below, and we'll do the shopping for you!


Interested in volunteering to help with this event?  Volunteers can sign-up to help with Holiday Gift Express using our online registration page which can be found here!
