DAWN Christmas Gift Drive

We know that you've already seen the e-mail and the posters, but there's nothing like information redundancy, right?

Silverfish is collecting gifts for the Domestic Abuse Women's Network (DAWN). This holiday season, DAWN's House will provide emergency shelter, support, and advocacy to many women and children forced to leave their homes because of domestic abuse. You can help the women and children who call DAWN's House home to know that the community cares about their safety during the holidays and all year long.

We are looking for the following specific items, though any gifts you would like to donate will be greatly appreciated.


(Mother and three children)

  • Mom: kitchen utensils & dish towels, coffee pot, small crock pot, gift card to F.Meyer, WalMart, etc., bathrobe (size L or XL), AMC movie passes for self & kids
  • Girl - age 14 - mp3 player, games (handheld electronic, DVD games, board games), watch, bathrobe (size women's M), Old Navy gift card, make-up kit
