Toys, Gift Card Donations Sought for Children’s Holiday Event
Every year the Domestic Violence Program organizes a holiday party for mothers and children who have been served by the shelter. At the party, the families are reunited with past shelter friends and staff. They enjoy a holiday meal together and have their photos taken with Santa Claus. Each parent also receives a bag of gifts for their children to be taken home, wrapped and placed under the tree. Annually, more than 100 families participate in this event, which is made possible by the community's generous donations.
If you would like to donate to the Children's Holiday Party this year, please bring unwrapped toys and gift cards for the mothers to the Domestic Violence Program, 421 King Street, Suite 400. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. All donations must be received by Monday, December 16. If you have any questions, please call Neeley Hughey 703.746.4911.
