The Holiday Season is a special and exciting time. However, for battered women, their dependent children, and victims of sexual assault it can be a source of great pain. If you are interested in providing Christmas to a woman, child, or family affected by domestic/sexual violence, please fill out this holiday sponsor form.

Starting this year we have made several procedural changes to our Christmas program.   We have created a Christmas Gift Store in which clients will fill out an application and  once approved will be able to shop and wrap gifts they choose for their children. The     qualifications for assistance are that the clients must have received services @SHRCC within the past year. These parents will be required to invest $5 per child or $20 per family. Those parents who cannot afford to pay the required amount(s) will be given a voucher to shop for gifts. We are asking our sponsors to purchase new items for children ages 0-18, adult women, and/or household supplies. We believe this will empower our clients as well as offer them the opportunity to be involved in the gift selection process for their children. Last year, SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition was able to provide gifts to 108 adults and children that have been impacted by violence. The sponsors who made this effort possible all came from our local community. We appreciate all that YOU did to make this program possible and look forward to working with YOU again this year.

Celebrate the holidays by helping others!

After you have filled out the Holiday sponsor form, you can mail it, fax it, email it, or drop it off at our office @ 236 Union Street ~ Spartanburg, SC.
