Help Survivors NOW thru 12.13!!!!

Sanctuary For Families is a NY state non-profit exclusively serving domestic violence victims, sex trafficking victims, and their children. Guess what? The holiday season can look pretty dark to those in crisis and together with you, we can turn the lights up. Until Dec.12, we will be collecting UNWRAPPED gifts for these brave survivors. Below, you will find a suggested gift list and then you will find out what's in it for YOU, ya know, besides feeling good doing a mitzvah for a total stranger.

                                The Suggested Gift List:

  • Gift Cards (ideally for places with a variety of goods- e.g. Target, Bed Bath & Beyond)

  • Scarves, Mittens, Hats (never been worn)

  • Skin care products (lotions, perfumes, etc)

  • Cosmetics and toiletries (for various skin tones/types)

             The What's in it for YOU Details:

    1.Bring in a gift bag for Sanctuary For Families

    2.Get a gift certificate to give to a friend for 20% off their first visit.

   3.When your friend comes in with the gift certificate with your name on it, we give you a $20 credit towards treatments.

**You can bring in as many bags as you like and with each donation, get a gift certificate for another friend, and build up your credits**

                         Making this Easy:

Next time you're at the drug store, pick up an extra shampoo/conditioner set, an extra body lotion. Next time you walk by a table in the area selling hats/scarves pick one or 2 up. Next time you're at Starbucks buying a coffee, ask the Barista to add a $10 gift certificate or a bag of coffee or tea. Next time you're at the movies, tell 'em to add on a gift certificate.

Tres Belle Spa MUST have your donations by December 12th as, we will deliver them to SFF to be wrapped and distributed to safe houses all over the city!
