Holiday Giving Program

How Our Holiday Giving Program Works

This holiday season, Women Helping Women is collecting gift cards to distribute to families in need, which will empower them to shop for holiday gifts for their children (which as we know, is half of the fun of gift-giving!). This is an adaptation of our previous adopt-a-family program that we made in 2020 due to covid-19. The feedback from survivors who received gift cards for holiday shopping in 2020 was that receiving gift cards rather than providing a wish list was empowering, and that’s what we’re all about at Women Helping Women!

The most helpful gift cards are those to stores that are most accessible – Walmart, Target, Kroger, Amazon, and Visa/MasterCard gift cards that can be used anywhere. We prefer increments of $25, with no one card being more than $100 so that we can distribute appropriate amounts to each family.  We ask for gift cards to be donated to WHW by December 1st if possible, to allow time for us to distribute them, and for survivors to do their holiday shopping, but we will be grateful for gift cards donated any time including after the holidays. 

If you are interested in making the holiday season joyous for survivors and their children by donating gift cards, please email Sara Kahmann at [email protected]. Click here to download a printable flyer to help with your gift card collection!

In order to be considered for holiday support through WHW, a person must be a current or past client of WHW. If you are a survivor seeking holiday assistance, please contact our advocates by calling or texting the hotline at 513-381-5610.

History

The Adopt-a-Family Program began in the fall of 1987 when a survivor of domestic violence contacted WHW and asked if any women and children needed donations for the holiday season.  This woman had utilized our services in the past and felt that she wanted to help others who may be in similar situations.  At that time, there was not a formal program in place.  However, as a result of this survivor’s compassion and willingness to assist other survivors, the Adopt-a-Family program began.

What started out with one survivor wanting to give back to her community has grown over the last 26 years to become a generous group of individuals, churches, and businesses committed to supporting survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
