PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Hope's Door, a local non-profit that works with victims of domestic violence, will once again be the recipient of donations from the Professional Women of Westchester annual holiday networking party and fundraiser on Monday, Dec. 7.
“The holidays are a time of reflection, family and giving thanks,” says Jamie Imperati, Professional Women of Westchester president. “So often we get wrapped up in the hustle and bustle, that we forget about the thousands of families right on our doorstep who don’t have a safe home to celebrate the holidays. We’re delighted and honored to help our friends at Hope’s Door, because they never forget about any family in crisis.”
Based in Pleasantville, Hope's Door, seeks to end domestic violence and to empower victims to achieve safety, independence, and healing from the trauma of abuse.
During the party, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Morton’s The Steakhouse, 9 Maple Avenue, White Plains, there will be a collection bin for items that Hope’s Door clients need during the holiday season.
Donation suggestions include gift cards to Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Walgreen’s, CVS, Rite Aid, Toys ’R’ Us, as well as gas gift cards and MetroNorth gift cards.
They will also be collecting donations of new items such as board games, dolls of different cultures, toys for babies and newborns, winter accessories for children and women, slippers, and full size toiletries.
“We are honored to have been chosen yet again to receive wonderful holiday gifts through the collection at the organization’s holiday party. The Professional Women of Westchester and their President Jamie have been so supportive of Hope’s Door, particularly during the holidays, which can be such a stressful time for our clients. The gifts collected always put a smile on the faces of those we serve,” said Executive Director CarlLa Horton.
