Holiday Giving

There are several ways to support the participants at Betty Griffin Center throughout the holidays.

Adopt-A-Family Holiday Program

Each year, we have families in our shelter fill out a ‘wish list’ for the holidays. This list includes their ages, genders, clothing and shoe sizes, along with three gift requests and special interests and hobbies.

Donors can adopt a family of any size, whether its a single woman, a mom and child or multiple families.

Help us make the holidays special for everyone this season by adopting a family.

If you’re interested, contact Kenlie at kenliek@bettygriffincenter.org to find out more!

 

We have up to 25 women and 25 children at any time in the shelter and more during the holidays.

Help us in making the holidays special!

Please donate any nonperishable food items or grocery store gift cards. You can drop them off or mail to our Outreach office, located at 2450 Old Moultrie Rd., Suite 202, in St. Augustine.
