During the holiday season, Grace Smith House opens its doors to countless survivors of domestic violence and their families. They need your help to provide their shelter families with holiday joy. Consider adopting a shelter family for this holiday season. You can be matched with a family and their recommended gift list, and the matching process is going on now. See here for more information on how to apply.
Gifts must be new items. Grace Smith House asks that all gifts be delivered wrapped and tagged with the family members’ names (if provided on the form), and arrive at their offices no later than Friday, December 14, to ensure delivery to the appropriate family in time for the holidays. Please call well in advance to schedule an appointment for delivery.
Grace Smith House is a religiously and ethnically diverse community, hosting families from all walks of life. They ask that you consider donating toys and items that are inclusive and open to all members of their family. The shelter is often lacking in items such as African-American body and hair care products, nonwhite dolls, nondenominational gift wrapping, etc. “We are very grateful for our donors’ generosity and their consideration for the diverse backgrounds and beliefs of our residents,” as stated on their website.
