As the holidays approach, we find ourselves in the season of giving. This December, Keystone Shops is partnering with Women Against Abuse and their Adopt-A-Family campaign for our third year in a row. The Adopt-A-Family program allows us to take on a family’s holiday wishlist and purchase their gifts for them, helping to make their holidays a little easier and filled with family time.
This year Keystone Shops is adopting two small families and handling their holiday wishlists. The first is a single mother with two young daughters who have all been carefully social distancing and have been spending time together having fun indoors. The second family is a single mother with an 8-year-old daughter who is expecting her second child at the end of the year. We are thrilled to be able to take part in making their holidays brighter, especially in these trying times. Women Against Abuse, the organization hosting the Adopt-A-Family campaign, is a Philadelphia-based, non-profit organization that provides safe havens, legal centers, transitional housing, and financial assistance to individuals and families that are victims of domestic violence.
The organization also provides a domestic violence hotline and community education and training on how to effectively intervene in situations of abuse and unhealthy relationships. Women Against Abuse aims to end domestic violence throughout our community and throughout the country. Throughout December, we will be offering various ways to donate to Women Against Abuse, and we are always accepting monetary donations at any location.
