W.O.M.E.N.’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

Thanksgiving Food Drive
We began our campaign humbly in 1999 with just a few bags of canned goods donated to the families our organization serves so they could have a Happy Thanksgiving. Our program has grown through the needs of our community and the generosity of our donors. We have been proud to serve our community faithfully with this program, however the economy has negatively affected our community, as you know, and our needs have grown greatly as the families we serve have drastically increased. We expect to give out more than 520 bags of perishable and non-perishable foodstuffs domestic violence survivors and their children this November, so they too will have a nutritious meal on Thanksgiving Day. 2017 marks W.O.M.E.N.’s 18th year hosting our annual Thanksgiving Giveaway. This year, we will be donating holiday food baskets to Human Trafficking Survivors in the Middle TN area. The baskets will provide survivors and their families with all of the ingredients for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. In addition to collecting non-perishable items, we are also looking provide meat (chicken, turkey, hen etc.) for these families. Due to the fact that meat will need to be purchased closer to Thanksgiving Day, we ask that those wanting to help in this way donate gift cards so that we may purchase it. A list of the non-perishable items needed for the baskets can be found below. Boxed Stuffing Mix (like Stovetop) Instant Mashed Potatoes in boxes or packets Jars or packets of Gravy Mix Canned Yams Cranberry Sauce Canned Veggies (green beans, corn, peas) Canned Fruit Cornbread Mix Canned Pumpkin or Fruit Pie Filling Pie Crust Mix Evaporated Milk Salt and Pepper Boxed Macaroni and Cheese Fixings for Green Bean Casserole – Cream of Mushroom Soup, Canned Green Beans, French Fried Onions Cake Mix or Brownie Mix and Can of Frosting Vegetable Oil Bags of Dried Beans or Rice Boxes of Jell-O or Pudding Mix Box of Graham Crackers Disposable roasting pans Disposable pie tins

W.O.M.E.N.’s Spa Day

Our BreakFREE Program has things in place for us all to celebrate our first (invitation only) Spa Day event this Friday, May 26th. Our Domestic Violence department and volunteers have been working very hard getting donations and sponsors for this event.  The purpose of this event is to celebrate our clients ability to BreakFREE from domestic violence and to learn their worth and power.  This event is geared towards pampering these victims allowing many of them a first time receiving Message, Facial, Mani, Pedi and Salon experience. We encourage empowerment and uplifting education pertaining to domestic violence. Not all victims live to tell their stories. For us it is important that all women dealing with abuse of any kind know that they have the power to control their life, so if you are a victim – don’t wait, get help and get out now! We are very excited to share with the public the support we have here in Davidson County and the surrounding areas. Next time you are out shopping, stop by and thank these places for their support.

Our Cause Domestic violence can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender. It can happen to couples who are married, living together or who are dating. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels.

   
  • One in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime.

  • Nearly three out of four (74%) of Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence

  • On average, more than three women and one man are murdered by their intimate partners in this country every day

 

Abuse is physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that frighten, intimidate, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure or wound someone. Take a stand with us and help us stop domestic violence in Nashville Davidson county and surrounding areas. Our mission is to bridge the gaps to reduce health disparities.
