Peace on Earth Begins at Home

While the past year has been uncertain for everyone, it has proven to be particularly difficult for women and children trapped in abusive homes. But with your help, we plan on reminding each and every client that she is valued and loved this holiday season.

 In order to keep clients, donors and staff safe, we have limited our Holiday Program to gift cards.* While this looks different than previous years, we are confident that these gift cards will make a lasting impact on the lives of our clients. When you give a gift card, you provide a woman in need with the power to choose—a luxury that has repeatedly been stripped away from her by her abusive partner. This year, your gift will enable our clients to get whatever it is that they want and need most right now.

*To best meet the needs of our clients, we are only asking for Visa gift cards, or gift cards to Amazon, Target or Walmart. Throughout the years, we have found that these are the most requested and provide a broad scope of items for our women and children. We will be providing these gift cards to mom early, along with wrapping supplies, so that she is able to shop for her kiddos and put the gifts under the tree herself. We will also be accepting wrapping paper, bows, ribbons and any additional wrapping supplies. If you feel so inclined, you may bring these items with you when you drop off your gift cards. Thank you in advance for your support!

Though all gifts will be in the form of gift cards, there are still several different ways in which you can participate:

Adopt a Family

Adopt a Family

Provide gift cards for an entire family! In choosing this option, you sign up to provide gift cards for an individual client or a mother and her children who are receiving services at Genesis. Each woman will be given gift cards totaling $150 for herself and every child will receive a $50 gift card. These cards are given early, along with wrapping supplies, so that mom is able to shop for her kiddos and put gifts under the tree herself. To get started, please fill out this form and a Holiday Elf will reach out to you.

Gift Card Ornament

Sponsor an Angel Tree

Choose this option if you’d like to sponsor our amazing kiddos. When you sponsor an angel tree, you allow a child to experience the magic of the holidays. This option is particularly great for large groups like offices or churches! You can select how many angels you’d like to sponsor and purchase one $25 gift card for each child. To get started, please fill out this form and a Holiday Elf will reach out to you.
