Holiday Giving

Toy Towne

You can help make the holidays a little brighter for families affected by domestic violence. AWAIC collects gifts from generous community members, just like you, and then creates Toy Towne Holiday Bazaar. Toy Towne is an opportunity for women to select gifts for their own children. The mothers feel more empowered by making choices and picking out items they know their children will like.

We ask that your donated gifts are NEW, UNWRAPPED, and dropped off to AWAIC no later than December 16th.
