Turning Point offers confidential resources to individuals and families.
There are several ways in which the community may become involving in assisting Turning Point clients during the holiday season.
Pre-Paid Gift Cards
The agency is always happy to accept pre-paid gift cards of all kinds. Often our clients have financial need, but would like to select and purchase gifts for their own family members. Gifts cards empower these clients by providing financial assistance, while still giving them choices.
The cards are helpful because they can be used as gifts at the holidays and throughout the year. Many of our families have very tight budgets and occasionally need a gas card to get to work or school, grocery help, or new shoes.
Gift cards have also been used to purchase crib mattresses for donated cribs, baby monitors, telephones, and many other items for our clients.
K Mart, Walmart, Target, Wawa, as well as cards for restaurants and grocery stores, are all appreciated. We prefer gift cards valued between $10 and $40. We also welcome Visa or American Express gift cards.
The 2017 'Spirit of Empowerment' Holiday Gift Card Giving Drive
At Turning Point of Lehigh Valley, we embrace the philosophy of empowerment. Our belief is to empower our clients through our programs and services by providing them the tools in order to make choices that promote healthy relationships. Through the philosophy of empowerment, it gives choice and control back to domestic violence survivors.
During the holiday season people ask how they can help our clients and their families. This year we are having a Holiday Gift Card Giving Drive. Gift cards are the easiest way to donate this holiday season – they are easy to purchase, deliver, store, and distribute. Your donation of a gift card allows the survivor to be part of the holiday shopping experience, allowing them to pick out the best gifts for their children.
We will be collecting gift cards (increments of $25) for our Holiday Gift Card Giving Drive from November 13 - December 18.
