Domestic Violence Roundtable Collects Valentine Donations for Families in Shelter

2018 Roundtable Valentines Day bags decorated by children at Sudbury Extended Day

Each February, the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable collects items for Valentine’s Day and fills gift bags for women, men and children temporarily living in local domestic violence shelters and transitional housing programs: REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, The Second Step, and Voices Against Violence. The Valentine Bags are decorated by the children from Sudbury Extended Day.

Members of our local communities are cordially invited to participate in this collection and to help fill the bags at the Roundtable meeting on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 3 PM at the Wayland Public Safety Building. This is a great opportunity for schools, scout groups, civic organizations, workplaces, families, friends, and neighbors to join the Roundtable in making lives brighter for families affected by domestic violence. Small gestures like the gift bags let families know they are supported in their decision to leave an abusive situation and brighten their day.

Some examples of needed items are gift cards for CVS, Target, grocery stores etc. For mothers in the shelters some items would include full size bath products, socks, cosmetics, nail polish, hair products, phone cards, journals, postage stamps etc. Items for teens and children should be age appropriate from crayons, coloring books, small stuffed animals, matchbox cars, stickers socks, and non-violent toys, to bath and hair products, books, diaries, movie passes, ITunes cards, and candy.

In past years the Roundtable has provided as many as 125 bags for families in shelter and transitional housing.

If you are interested in contributing to the Valentine’s Day collection, please contact the Roundtable at info@dvrt.org . A collection basket will be available in the lobby of the Wayland Public Safety Building located at the intersection of Routes 20 and 27 in Wayland from February 5-12, 2019.
