Help Spread Holiday Cheer and Get Involved with SafeHaven in December!
Women escaping domestic violence often leave everything behind to find safety at SafeHaven of Tarrant County. SafeHaven’s annual Santa’s Sack gift drive collects donations of gifts for kids and moms from December 10-19 in hopes of bringing the comforts of home to families affected by domestic violence.
What is Santa's Sack?
Santa’s Sack donations allow moms and children staying at SafeHaven shelters to select special gifts for each other at our Christmas Store (at no cost, of course!). Gifts are then carefully wrapped by our elves (awesome volunteers like you!) and delivered by Santa on Christmas morning, bringing the joy of the holidays to families at SafeHaven.
There are a lot of ways to get involved this holiday.
Whether you are grabbing an extra gift as you shop for your friends and family, or you are able to give your time, we have an opportunity for you to get involved!
Since this is gift exchange drive for children as well as their moms, we are looking for toys as well as the perfect gift for mom! We are looking for toys for all ages, books, games, puzzles, as well as purses, scarves, gift cards, etc. Anything you would like under your tree works for us!
