DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence Holiday Gift Drive

This annual Holiday Gift Drive allows the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence to provide gifts to families living in emergency shelters and temporary housing.   And lest you think this is just another appeal for holiday presents, think again.   It's a way to help a family recovering from domestic violence have a happy holiday season.

There are two ways you can help:

  • Adopt a Family:   For families recovering from domestic violence, the holidays can be especially challenging--many mothers are living with their children in temporary emergency shelter or housing without the resources to brighten the holidays for their children.   You have the opportunity to adopt one or several families of your choice and purchase items on the families' holiday wish lists.

    Contact us at (202) 299-1181 or via email for more information about holding a holiday gift drive and to obtain a family wish list.
  • Pick-up and Deliver Presents:   We need help from two or three volunteers with access to a vehicle to transport gifts to our families.   Transport days are on December 20 and 21 from Noon to 2:00 pm.   If you are available to volunteer please email DCCADV.
