In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, our organization has chosen to host a gift card drive that will allow our donors and clients to shop and celebrate in a more safe and secure way this holiday season. This decision will also simultaneously empower our clients to decide on gifts appropriate for their own families' needs. The cards will be gifted to the individual client, supporting them on their journey from victim to survivor. We hope these options may provide opportunities for more donors to participate, including those who may not wish to shop at multiple retailers due to COVID-19.
Suggested Stores & Retailers:
Target, Kohl’s, Walmart, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx.
Stop & Shop, ShopRite, Amazon, Acme,
Tops Market, Mobile, Shell, and BP
We ask that donations be delivered by Monday, 11/30/2020. In doing so, this will allow our staff the necessary time to match each donation with a family and to allow our clients ample time to shop before the holidays.
Donations can be dropped off at PNWWRC located at 935 S. Lake Blvd Suite 2, Mahopac, NY, 10512 on Monday-Friday between 9:30am-4:30pm.
Please contact Jessica @ (845) 628-9284 ext. 226 or email: JGrainger@pnwwrc.org for more information and to coordinate delivery times.
The Putnam/No. Westchester Women’s Resource Center envisions a united community assertively intolerant of all violence; a community that is educated in the intricate ways that power can be abused; a community that values all of its members and respects their rights and their diversity; a community where individuals are safe in their homes, in their work places, and on our streets; a community where children are safe in their schools, in their homes, and among their peers; a community where children are respected, valued and provided the support needed to become productive, fulfilled adults.
We envision a community that protects, values and enables all its citizens, regardless of gender, to develop their own voice and to reach their full potential; a community that values both women and men equally for their self assurance, inner strength and self respect; a community where all resources are equally available to both women and men of all ages.
We envision a community where women and men are working side-by-side to reach these goals; a community where law enforcement and the legal system promote the achievement of these goals; a community where the resources to attain these goals are available and accessible to all.
