Adopt-A-Family has been running strong for 5+ years and 2014 was no different! With the support of several generous donations from individuals and local businesses, the Adopt-A-Family program was able to raise $1,605 for survivors of domestic violence and their families!
We always encourage our donors to donate gift cards so that survivors can feel empowered by picking out a gift for themselves or for their children. This year we received several gift cards of various forms… from grocery stores, to movie theaters, to Target and other department stores. These donations were divided up to the participants of W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s Therapy Program and Latina Program. A Latina Program participant had this to say about the Adopt-A-Family program: “In my opinion I think the Adopt-A-Family program is marvelous!! It was a huge help for me and my daughter during the holidays. My daughter received an art kit, along with some gift cards, and she just loved it! I’m very grateful for all the help provided during the holidays. Thank you so much.”
W.O.M.A.N., Inc. would like to thank everyone that donated to the Adopt-A-Family program. Because of your generous donations you were able to bring some holiday joy and many smiles to survivors of domestic violence and their families. Without your support, the Adopt-A-Family program would not be possible. Thank you!
