SAFETY ALERT: If you are in danger, please use a safer computer, or call 911, a local hotline, or the U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and TTY 1-800-787-3224. Use the “Esc” button on the left to quickly leave the site.
Safe Nest families, just like yours and ours, enjoy holiday gifts, but they mostly want and need the services Safe Nest provides and the knowledge that we’ll be there for future abused women and children. A former client stated “those services are what gave me the gift of peace of mind and a violence-free life.” Is there a greater gift that you could give an adult or child victim of domestic violence?
Please consider donating a gift card to support Safe Nest. A great deal of support goes into helping the women, men and children coming to Safe Nest to escape the violence they are experiencing. You can be a part of that support. For example:
A gas gift card fills shelter vans used to transport women to critical appointments and job interviews, and used to transport children on field trips, to experience, if only for a brief time, the joy and fun of being a child.
Grocery store gift cards put meals on our shelter tables. At Safe Nest moms cook the meals, and in an atmosphere free of tension, anger or violence, they sit with their children sharing an experience that feeds their bodies and heals their spirits.
Discount store gift cards are priceless! Think of all the things you purchase there. Target, Wal-Mart and K-Mart cards enable staff to purchase everyday necessities filling in the gaps in our donations. Over the counter medications are staples (flu season is here!) as are baby items.
Phone cards are a luxury. However, in our transient community victims may be without the support of family and friends. Phone cards provide the means to call police or to call for other assistance.
Visa and MasterCard gift cards are amazing. Routine expenses such as property repairs, van maintenance, and client prescription medications can all be covered with these.
Today, your gift, whether monetary or in the form of a gift card will help us maintain critically needed services and basic necessities for victims and their children. If peace on earth truly begins at home, surely it’s passed on from your home to ours – and to our Safe Nest shelter families. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to participate. Peace!
