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.
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 2018 '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 to give choice and control back to domestic violence survivors.
As the holidays approach, it is important to reflect on the joys and blessings in our lives while being aware that there are many families of domestic violence who are in need. There are financial burdens as a result of starting over after domestic violence. Consider the Holiday Gift Card Giving Drive to help domestic violence survivors celebrate with dignity during this holiday season.
Gift cards are the easiest way to donate. Your gift card donation empowers survivors to be part of holiday shopping experience for their loves ones allowing them to pick out just the right gifts for this holiday season. With your generous support you can brighten the holiday spirit and warm the hearts for our families and children. Thank you for giving the gift of empowerment.
We will be collecting gift cards (increments of $25) until
December 14th, 2018 to allow for shopping time.
Your support of our families at the holidays and throughout the year is greatly appreciated!
