Can You Adopt a Family This Holiday Season?

‘Tis the season to spread holiday cheer.  Happy Holidays from Women’s Center and  Shelter (WC&S)!  As we jump into the 2011 holiday season, I’d like to invite you to participate in our Adopt-a-Family program. 

Women’s Center & Shelter endeavors to make the holiday season as festive as possible for its clients.  Our most meaningful holiday program is Adopt-a-Family.  Through your generosity, every December, Women’s Center & Shelter distributes gift cards to resident and non-resident mothers.  Donations of gift cards give mothers the freedom to shop for holiday presents for their children and themselves.  Gift cards empower women to make choices for their family again.  

By Adopting-a-Family, you empower domestic violence survivors to make this holiday season as normal and joyful as possible.  Suggested gift cards are to stores offering a wide variety of items.  Please fill out the attached gift formand mail the form and gift cards to Women’s Center & Shelter by Friday, December 9, 2011.  If you are hosting a gift card collection drive, simply fill out the event registration form and return it to WC&S prior to the drive.  Please feel free to call Rebecca at 412-687-8017 x 337 with any questions.
