WHAT WILL MY GIFT CARDS DO?
Most battered and abused woman have all the control taken away from them. When they are given gift cards, they can go shopping for themselves and their children for what THEY want and/or need. It gives THEM control back over their lives.
CAN I JUST GIVE MONEY?
Yes, that's great, too. The money is distributed and used wisely and carefully by the Shelter. Last year the money was used to give women money for bus fare... so the shelter resident women could go to job interviews. These things make a BIG difference!
WHAT DO I DO IF...
I LIVE OUT OF TOWN AND WANT TO DONATE?
