Donate Gift Cards for
Women Entering Home

While we all do our best to make the holiday season joyful for our guests, their goal (and ours!) is to get them out of the shelter and into their own home.

There are donations you can make that will help us, help them all year round. Please consider donating gift cards in small increments ($10, $20, $25, $50) from stores like Target, WalMart, Payless Shoes, gas stations, and VISA to the Helen Wright Center.

Gift cards can be used to help a guest purchase a pair of shoes or pants, to start a new job, fill their gas tank, or to purchase items to help set up their new home.
