Adopt A Family 2018

Adopt-A-Family provides basic necessities, food, and Chanukah gifts and/or gift cards to battered women and their children facing the holidays alone.

For abused women starting a new life, many having left their homes and possessions behind, Adopt-A-Family is an opportunity for hope and help in getting back on their feet.

Here is a little information about the family we are adopting:

When Julia married her children’s father, he seemed the picture perfect husband. However his behavior quickly changed and he started verbally abusing her and controlling the money. He was very angry and rageful. When they had children, the abuse escalated and Julia feared for her children’s safety. She worked with a lawyer over a period of years to file for divorce and to obtain custody of her children, and has an active restraining order against their father. She is raising them mostly on her own, without any financial support from her ex, although he does have some small amount of supervised visitation with his children. She is working on rebuilding her professional career and taking care of her children, while continuing to fight in court for their safety.

You can either donate money or purchase a specific gift.  Gifts can be delivered to the PS Women Chanukah brunch on Dec 2, 2018.  If you can't make the brunch please contact Sue.

New items only please!

Please gift-wrap the items.  Gift Cards do not need to be wrapped

GIFTS ARE DUE December 3rd

We prefer that you not include a card due to confidentiality. Shalom Bayit will add personalized cards to your gifts before delivery.
