Mother’s Day Fundraiser for Survivors of Domestic Violence

May 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Mother’s Day Fundraiser for Survivors of Domestic Violence

In honor of Mother’s Day

on May 8th, the Domestic Violence Committee is hosting a fundraiser for the clients of the Manhattan Family Justice Center. The Manhattan Family Justice Center (FJC) is a safe, caring environment that provides a variety of services and support for survivors  of domestic and gender-based violence. A number of victim’s services organizations are hosted at the city’s FJCs including Safe Horizon, Sanctuary for Families, Arab American Family Support Center, The Legal Aid Society and NYLAG, among many others. Clients  at the FJC are often mothers, who are in need of emergency financial assistance to buy basic essentials such as food, clothing, diapers and wipes, and other small necessities, as they flee violent relationships. The Manhattan FJC would very much appreciate  the support of NYWBA members in the form of gift cards, mailed or emailed to the FJC. Visa gift cards are preferred, but gift cards from Target, Amazon and local grocery stores such as Key Foods and Trader Joe’s are also very useful. Any small denomination  (such as $10, $20, $50) is appreciated.

Please send your gift cards in time for Mother’s Day on May 8th, however, any time in the month of May will be appreciated.

Please mail gift cards to: 
Manhattan Family Justice Center
80 Centre Street, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10013

Or email gift cards to:
Esmeralda Pena
Client Services Coordinator

For questions contact Olivia Wilson, Esq., Executive Director, Manhattan FJC, at OliviaW@fjcnyc.org.

Thank you very much for supporting survivors of domestic and gender-based violence this Mother’s Day.
