Berks Women in Crisis, http://berkswomenincrisis.org/, located in Reading, PA, provides emergency shelter for women and children who need to escape dangerous living situations, and provides a safe haven and ongoing support for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Their advocacy and education programs increase awareness and promote the prevention of domestic violence, sexual assault, and all forms of oppression.
What They Need: Between now and December 1st, ABSA will be collecting donations of unwrapped, new toys (for toddlers up to teenagers) and gift items for mothers (gift sets of shower gels, shampoos, body creams and other toiletries are always welcome and much appreciated) to be given to the women and and their children who are staying in their safe house. Everyone deserves a gift to open this holiday season. You can help to make this a reality for the many families living in the Berks Women in Crisis safe house.
