Looking to put a smile on a child’s face this holiday season?
Turning Point Domestic Violence Services has an opportunity for you to help.
The organization’s annual holiday store is currently accepting gift donations for local families. Clients in need have the opportunity to get help in having gifts for their children from donations made by the community.
A year ago, 122 families, including 235 children, received help through Turning Point.
Donations can be made through Turning Point’s wish lists on www.amazon.com, www.walmart.com and www.target.com, which is a new addition this year. The links for the wish lists can be found at www.turningpointdv.org/events, under the Holiday Store headline.
Donations can conveniently be made from “the comfort of your own home to spread holiday cheer to others,” according to a press release.
The deadline to make donation selections is Dec. 6 in order to make sure participating families receive gifts in time for the holidays.
All gifts, checks and gift cards should be sent to Turning Point’s administrative offices, which is in the United Way Center building at 1531 13th St., Columbus, IN, due to current COVID-19 protocols.
Turning Point serves Shelby County as well as Bartholomew, Brown, Jackson and Johnson counties. For more information on the holiday store, e-mail Volunteer Coordinator Dede Parker at deirdreparker@turningpoint dv.org.
