This program helps the Battered Women’s Shelter in sustaining general household supplies throughout the first half of the year. Adults and children entering our shelters often need essential items including pajamas, socks, underwear, coats, toiletries and over the counter medication. Along with personal essential needs, our shelters are always in need of cleaning supplies, cooking supplies (pots and pans, dishes, silverware), bath towels and paper products. The items being donated through the Adopt-A-Shelter program do not need to be wrapped. Gift cards are always welcome. If you choose to donate to this program, a list will be sent to you of items needed.
Individuals and families living in our shelters and in our community programs are available to be “adopted” during the holidays. If you choose this program we ask that you provide all of the holiday gifts to the individual or family. Individuals and families who are “adopted out” are not provided with any gifts from other agencies. If you choose this program, a wish list will be sent with the individuals and/or families’ names.
This option is for those interested in gathering their company, organization, school, etc. together for a giving tree or fundraiser. We will contact you if you choose this option to discuss your ideas and how we can help.
