Christmas Shoe-Box

Christmas Shoe-Box Campaign
What is it?
We try to make holiday season a little brighter for mothers and their children living at the Battered Women’s Shelter, Access House, Harvest Home, Haven of Rest and Safelanding Youth Shelter.
We need YOUR help! 

On a daily basis, these shelters provide a safe haven for women and children who’ve had to leave their homes and personal belongings behind.  Although the shelters provide a fresh start for these families in many ways, they need our help in providing everyday hygiene items.   

 Can you help?  Join us in making this holiday season special for these families.  We have a special need of items for the mothers, fathers and teenage boys living at the shelters.
