Buy a Gift for a Domestic Violence Survivor

The WBASNY Domestic Violence Committee Presents the 2023 Norejko Schwaeber Gift Drive 

In recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25th and the holiday season of giving, WBASNY is embarking on the second year of its annual Gift Drive, to support domestic violence organizations and the victims they serve across New York State. 

This year we have named the project the “Norejko Schwaeber Gift Drive” in honor of our former DV co-chairs Amanda Norejko and Lois Schwaeber, who were fierce warriors against domestic violence. Amanda Norejko passed away in August 2023 after a career of tirelessly helping victims, while serving as a WBASNY officer and NYWBA President. Amanda also co-founded this initiative and asked us to carry it forward. Lois Schwaeber passed away in June 2023, after decades supporting domestic violence survivors, while chairing WBASNY committees and as an active member of the Nassau chapter. 

WBASNY members are encouraged to purchase gifts from the wishlists of domestic violence organizations across the state, starting around November 25, 2023, through the holiday season until January 5, 2024.  Please find below a list of WBASNY chapter areas with a corresponding organization and their wishlist link. 

WBASNY would like to track the contributions of our members to this drive, so please send an email to the DV co-chairs at after you have sent your gift, and let us know that you bought something for your local org. 

Please reach out to  with any questions or concerns, or if you would like to add an organization to the list.
