At PADV we serve over 150 clients daily (In both our shelters and in our Transitional Housing Program). Fifty percent of those served are children between the ages of 0 – 17 years old. The holidays are a special time for everyone and many of the families served find this time of year a struggle, not only personally but also financially. Most of our families live on a limited income and are therefore, not able to provide gifts for their children.
At PADV we strive to make the holiday season special for our clients. Please consider helping us to make this holiday season a little brighter by donating gifts for our women in shelter and the children we serve. Below is a list of suggested gift items. Please note that we are only able to accept new, unused, unwrapped items for holiday giving. Our clients enjoy choosing the gifts for their children and wrapping them as well. On behalf of the women and children we serve, we thank you for your continued generosity and wish you a wonderful holiday season! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make a donation.
**Please note that NO used or wrapped items will be accepted as holiday gifts.
