Who says the holidays are the only time for giving?
This year, Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services (WCYFS) will host its seventh annual Christmas in July donation drive. Christmas comes once a year, but our clients have critical needs all year long. This drive brings awareness to the fact that, unfortunately, violence and victimization occurs year round. It encourages the community to support homeless youth and victims by making monetary or in-kind donations throughout the month of July.
“WCYFS has witnessed the incredible generosity of this community time and time again – from the outpouring of support during our awareness campaigns to giving during the holiday season. Christmas in July highlights the fact that violence and homelessness are ongoing issues, and some of the most vulnerable members of our community have needs all year long. Because of the generosity and support of the community, WCYFS is able to meet the critical needs of our clients through any season.” said Krista Fiser, CEO of Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services.
The Christmas in July drive outlines specific programmatic needs for our clients, especially youth and young adults starting school. Needs range from hygiene items to school supplies. Bring joy this summer season by collecting much-needed items from the wish list below. Your gift will help support homeless youth and victims on their path to healing.
