Center Seeking Gift Card Donations

By Sheila AshThe Center for Women and Families is asking for donations of gift cards this holiday season. The center’s goal is one thousand gift cards in $25 increments.Spokesperson Steven Bowling says the gift cards make it more convenient for their residents to shop for their children."It helps us with safety issues to where if they can’t leave the shelter they can shop online. And if you know there is a specific toy that an individual wants the mother can actually shop for herself. You know make that decision and that choice for her own family which is something that she’s not used to doing," he said. Bowling says they prefer gift cards from Target, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s and local malls.Gift cards may be dropped off at the Center’s main campus at 927 South Second Street Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 6 pm.
