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 [email protected] 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!
