Thank you for supporting our Annual Adopt-A-Family Program!

2017 was an intense year. There were so many things happening around the world and even here close to home in California that put stresses on everyone. But with everything going on in the world folks were still able to make donations to our Adopt a Family Program. This program goes on every year during the holiday season, where folks and businesses are able to make donations, gifts or gift cards, to survivors of domestic violence and their families. Adopt a Family program brought in $860+ donations in the form of gift cards and gifts, a little less than previous years but these donations were still able to put smiles on our participants and their families. One participant said “I always look forward to the holiday season at W.O.M.A.N., Inc. Working 2 jobs has been stressful and I am only able to provide the minimum for my kids so I always look forward to this program because I know I will be able to give my kids something for the holidays.”

W.O.M.A.N., Inc. would like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has made Adopt a Family possible. A very special thank you to Cole Hardware for always thinking of us during the holiday season & for collecting Adopt a Family donations at their stores this year. Thanks to them, we received over $8,000 in monetary contributions. Without all of your generous donations this program would not be possible.

We would like to encourage people to think about making a donation to our Adopt a Family program to help support our participants and their families this year, 2018, during the holiday season.

2017 fue un año intenso. Hubo tantas cosas sucediendo alrededor del mundo e incluso aquí en California que puso estrés en todos. Pero con todo lo que sucedió la gente todavía pudo hacer una donación a nuestro programa Adopt a Family (Adoptar una Familia). Este programa se hace cada año durante las fiestas navideñas, adonde la gente o negocios pueden hacer donaciones, tarjetas de regalos o regalos, a sobrevivientes de violencia doméstica y a sus familias. El programa recaudó $860+ donaciones en forma de tarjetas de regalo y regalos, un poco menos que años anteriores, pero estas donaciones todavia hicieron a nuestros participantes sonreir. Una participante dijo “Siempre espero con ansias las fiestas navideñas en WOMAN Inc. Trabajar 2 trabajos ha sido estresante y solo puedo brindar el mínimo para mis hijos, así que siempre espero este programa porque sé que podré darles a mis hijos algo para las fiestas navideñas.”

W.O.M.A.N., Inc.; quisiera agradecer a todos los que han hecho posible Adopt a Family. Un agradecimiento muy especial a Cole Hardware por estar siempre pensar en nosotros durante las fiestas navideñas y por recaudar donaciones en sus tiendas este año. Gracias a ellos, recibimos más de $ 8,000 en contribuciones monetarias. Sin sus generosas donaciones, este programa no sería posible.

Nos gustaría invitarlos a pensar en hacer una donación a nuestro programa de Adopt a Family para apoyar a nuestras participantes y sus familias este año, 2018, durante las fiestas navideñas.
