First Thursday Featured Nonprofit: Alexandria Battered Women's Shelter

August 04, 2016 2:49 PM | Pat Miller (Administrator)

     The Alexandria Battered Women's Shelter was recently renovated, and it looks spectacular!  Now we need to make the Shelter a home for those that unfortunately reside there.  We need to create a space that is warm and welcoming, and most of all: SAFE. 

     We are asking you to extend that feeling of home to the Alexandria Battered Women's Shelter by gifting an item from their Target registry, available here.

     These items have been handpicked by the Director of the Shelter and a pair of wonderful home stylists to make the women and families who stay at the Shelter feel more at home.  With your help, we can make their environment both functional and aesthetically pleasing, which helps promote personal well-being.

     Even if you can only give a few dollars, we would be forever grateful - that's the difference between a bare bones room and a welcoming one.   Items can be shipped directly to the shelter, or left on the porch at 110 E. Del Ray. 

    We welcome any conversation or questions!  Please contact Pat Miller pmiller1806@comcast.net, President of the Friends of the Alexandria Commission for Women. 

    Your help will be greatly appreciated!
