Happy Holidays

It’s the 23rd Annual Friends & Helpers Holiday Event!

A Holiday GiftFriends & Helpers is proud to once again help provide Holiday gifts for victims of domestic violence who are living in local shelters, group homes and are working not only to rebuild their lives but also to re build their self-esteem.

At our Holiday events we will be wrapping presents, stuffing stockings with candy, and filling women’s bags with personal items for women and teenagers. Families and other donors from all over our community can adopt one or more of our in need families for the holidays. Some of our other supporters choose to purchase new toys, gift cards, and any items from our wish lists (click here to go to donate needed items page).

We appreciate the time you are taking to visit Friends and Helpers. Whether you decide to contribute, please know that we have thousands of people who need to be adopted, we have many stockings to be stuffed, many bags to be filled and many children who need holiday toys. You are providing these women and children with the only holiday they will receive. There are many ways you can directly support our efforts at Friends and Helpers and please know that every bit helps, be it one toy or five dollars. We appreciate every effort.

We will spend December 5th and 6th wrapping gifts and doing all we can to bring the holidays to these deserving women and children. We will have drop off locations all over Southern California starting on November 30th. You may join us at our drop off locations or join us at our holiday events, rain or shine!
