The holidays are a wonderful time of year! It’s a time to reflect on all our good fortunes, as well as to share a bit of what we have with those who are facing harder times. If you are looking for a way to give, you have the opportunity to make the lives of domestic violence victims and their children a little brighter.
Each year, REACH of Haywood County provides food and gifts to families working with our agency. Without support from the community, these families will have nothing for the holiday season.
There are many ways you can make a difference. Your family, church group, co-workers, or social organization can pull together and sponsor one of our families in need. As a sponsor, you will receive a wish list for each member of a family. Use this list as your shopping guide to purchase clothing, household items, and other gifts for these individuals.
Can’t sponsor an entire family? No problem! We also accept individual gifts and monetary donations.
Love to shop, but hate to wrap? We have elves ready at our office to complete any wrapping and help your gifts shine. Unwrapped gifts will be accepted until December 9th
Love to give, but have no time for shopping? We accept monetary donations at any time and in any amount.
If you are interested in sponsoring a family or an individual, we ask that all gifts be turned in no later than December 15th. This is to ensure that our families have plenty of time to pick up their gifts before the holidays, and gives our office elves time to do any last minute shopping.
