Your tax-deductible gift will mean so much as we help victims and their children:
$25: A gas card can be provided to victims and children, as they flee domestic violence. They often need help with transportation expenses to get to a safe place or meet with a WRAP advocate.
$50: A gift card to a local store, for basic needs, is provided to victims and their children. When people flee domestic violence they often leave everything behind. WRAP provides items such as diapers and wipes, toothpaste, laundry soap, clothing, etc.
$100: Safe shelter and food for 1 night can be provided. As people are fleeing, they often need a safe place to stay until they can work with a WRAP advocate.
$200: Help a victim and their children, by supplying a deposit for utilities, as they restart their lives in a new home.
$450: Provide a victim and their children four nights of safe housing, in a hotel as they flee from violence. All food and personal care items are provided for the family during this time.
$650: One month’s worth of rent for the WRAP safe house, which is located throughout the Lincoln, Lyon, Redwood, and Yellow Medicine Counties. A victim and their children are able to stay up to 29 days at a secured house, as they work on progressing forward.
Our goal is to raise $1,000 this year and you can help us reach it. You can donate TODAY and it will count towards Give to the Max!
