Each year, thousands of women and children flee domestic violence to find shelter at one of the Edmonton and area Women’s Shelters. Many women leave quickly with their children taking nothing more than the clothes on their backs in a desperate attempt to get away. Having somewhere safe to stay is vital to these families.
No one should be forgotten during the holidays.
Join Global News for this year’s Give Me Shelter campaign to help make the holidays a bit brighter for women and children fleeing domestic violence.
For 15 years, the Give Me Shelter campaign has provided thousands of much-needed items and Christmas gifts for women and children who are the victims of violence in our community, as well as thousands of dollars in donations.
We are collecting gift cards, toiletries, and unwrapped gifts for women and children of all ages. The most needed items are:
The donations are shared among these 5 amazing women’s shelters supporting families in need:
