Our Wish Lists

"You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you."  John Bunyan

Shop to Help

Donating new products from our Wish List helps ensure that The Violence Prevention Center can provide survivors of domestic  violence and their children with the basic necessities they so often must leave behind.  Your contributions and efforts empower survivors to move forward with their lives safely and with confidence.  

Due to limited storage space, we can only accept used clothing and household items through The Shelter Shop.  Survivors can pick up any necessities they need at the Shelter Shop.
