The women and families who receive emergency shelter and support through Women In Distress often have pressing needs for everyday items that require resources. From putting groceries on the table to purchasing clothing for children in school, our participants often have needs that are urgent. We need your help in meeting these basic needs. Our supply of gift cards is at the lowest point in years.
We have a policy at Women In Distress that we do not offer cash to participants. In being wise stewards of the resources our donors entrust to us, we feel an obligation to ensure that funds are managed with transparency and integrity. Our practice is to meet basic needs whenever possible with gift cards in denominations of $25-50.
Your gift will allow us to ensure that a working mother is able to put gas in her car’s tank; groceries in her refrigerator; or clothe her children for school. Please take a moment to make your gift – 100% of funds received will go directly toward gift card purchases which are provided to participants throughout the year as needs arise.
