To think that these women and children had to be traumatized once again - that they were once again left with nothing - made me want to help.
I belong to a mother's group in my town, and we received an email from one of the managers requesting help. Maybe you want to help too:
One of the shelter managers suggested gift cards which will help these women purchase basic necessities if/when they are placed in other temporary shelters. Specifically, she recommended Target, Stop & Shop or other major grocery stores. Anything--even $25--will help.
If you are able, please send donations to :
