Fostering healing and joy for domestic violence survivors through the holiday spirit
During the holiday season, gift-giving can be a luxury for those affected by domestic violence. Parents often sacrifice their needs to make the holiday special for their children. That’s why we created ‘Santa’s Shack’ in shelters, allowing children to choose gifts for their parents, who also deserve to feel cherished.
It costs them nothing but gives much.
Volunteers partner with family units and guide children as they search for the ideal gift, providing their mothers with precious free time—a luxury they may not have enjoyed in a while. For women without children, we provide a wishlist, and volunteers can select gifts for these women.
Annually, we collaborate with domestic violence shelters in North Texas to establish a special “Santa’s Shack” within the shelter. Dedicated volunteers assist children in choosing gifts that are beautifully wrapped and ready for Christmas Day.
