Donations During COVID-19

Your support is needed now more than ever.

Domestic violence and sexual assault do not just stop because of a crisis like COVID-19. When family stressors increase, violence and abuse can quickly escalate. It is in these very trying times that survivors need 180 even more and we are determined to be there for everyone who needs our services. Your support allows us to save and change lives.

Hundreds of victims in Monmouth County phoned our hotline during these months of the pandemic. Many victims were left extremely vulnerable while they quarantined with an abuser. Physical and emotional violence were dominating their lives and threatening the safety and well-being of their children. Despite this, many survivors were thankfully able to reach us.

What we are learning from their horrific experiences is that abusers are using the pandemic as an excuse to further exert control. It serves as a stark reminder that during times of crisis, an already abusive relationship can become dangerously volatile.

Donor support has enabled 180 to both remain open throughout this challenging time and adjust all of our services so that survivors can access the support they need. More work is needed as we move into the uncertain months ahead of us.

Your Impact

When you give to 180, you support free and comprehensive services for survivors. Look what your gift can do:

Gift Cards for Families In Need – Especially this coming Holiday Season

This year due to the coronavirus pandemic and out of an abundance of caution for our survivor families and staff, we are not hosting the traditional “Holiday Shop” and thus, not collecting physical gifts to redistribute (housewares, toys, clothing, etc.). Rather, we are distributing donated gift cards to families. This way families still get what they need and we can uphold social distancing and the frequency of visitors to our office. We hope to return to our regular Holiday Boutique next year. Thank you for your flexibility during these unprecedented times.

Please know, by donating gift cards, you empower survivors to shop independently, purchase the gifts on their children’s wish lists, and help to create a happy holiday for their family despite financial circumstances resulting from abuse. Please donate gift cards in denominations of $25 or more from stores such as: Target, Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, Michael’s, etc.

Gift Cards should be delivered to 180 by December 11 so that we have time to distribute to our families and they can then shop for their children.

Masks are required upon dropping off the gift cards. Donations may be dropped off at 180’s administrative offices in Hazlet by appointment only. Please call AMANDA (732) 264-4360 ext. 4231 to make an appointment.

We look forward to resuming our regular donation collections with you in the near future.
