Since domestic violence survivors face many barriers when transitioning into safe homes, we need YOUR help supplying families with house-hold cleaning supplies, pet supplies, and personal hygiene products! We are asking for donations that cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits. This year we will be delivering our donations to Volunteers of America – Home Free and Catholic Charities El Programa – Project UNICA. With your generous donations, you would make a tremendous difference for a survivor and their family!
