Help for the Holidays 2007
Thanks to so many generous supporters, our 2007 Hope for the Holidays Annual Drive was a huge success:
- More than 10,000 toys, gifts and gift cards were distributed to children and families in crisis at holiday celebrations across the city
- More than 60 corporate and individual donors participated this year, helping us to spread the holiday spirit
Celebrating the Holidays
Over 10 companies celebrated the true meaning of the holiday season by helping children and families in need. Teams of corporate volunteers held toy and gift drives and sponsored holiday parties that benefited hundreds of women, men and children who have been touched by violence. Volunteers led arts and crafts activities with the kids in our child advocacy centers, enjoyed pizza and other holiday snacks with the moms in our domestic violence shelters, and scored some strikes while bowling with teens in our School Programs.
It’s not too late to get involved
Holidays, birthdays and other special occasions can be extremely difficult for those touched by violence. It's never too late to get involved. You can provide store gift cards, gift baskets and other donations that would make great gifts for families in shelter and homeless youth throughout the year.
To find out how your company or group can get involved in volunteer projects to help people touched by violence contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
