Every year, generous donors transform a whole wing of our Waugh building into a holiday “shopping” paradise for the children and parents served by the Women’s Center. It is a magical experience and brings a little light and joy into lives that have seen too much darkness. Generously donated items make it possible for a child or parent to experience the fun of choosing and sharing that “just right” selection with someone they love.
Check out our wishlist and donate new, unwrapped toys and gifts for survivors and their family members. Gift cards are always welcome, and monetary donations allow us to restock the shelves when we run short of gifts. Click here to make a secure donation online.

Last year, more than 1,500 parents, teens and children received gifts through the Holiday Store. Many clients tell us the Holiday Store is the only way they are able to celebrate the holidays with gifts for their children. With rooms dedicated to each age group, parents can browse until they find the present they know will bring a smile to their child’s face. And in the parent store, volunteers help children and teens pick out something special for their mom, dad or caregiver. Our gift wrap room is filled with colorful paper and bright bows to keep the surprise safe.
