Beginning in July, Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services will host its sixth annual Christmas in July. This drive brings awareness to the fact that violence in our county occurs year around, and it encourages the community to support the most vulnerable populations by making monetary or in-kind donations throughout the month of July.
“WCYFS and the individuals we serve are incredibly fortunate to be a part of a giving and compassionate community—the generosity that arose during this last winter holiday season through our Adopt-A-Family was beyond incredible. Christmas in July highlights the sobering fact that victimization and youth homelessness occurs year round and the needs of our most vulnerable community members are critical 365 days a year.” says Jennifer Jones, CEO of WCYFS.
The Christmas in July drive outlines specific programmatic needs for clients through nine categories: school supplies, art supplies, health and beauty, hygiene products, bathroom essentials, household essentials, baby & toddler, accessories and apparel. The complete wish list can be found in the link below, and donations will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at 620 North San Joaquin Street in Stockton. For more information or questions please contact us at (209) 941-2611.
