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.
