About

Looking for a way to give back this holiday season?

YWCA Angeline’s Enhanced Night Program serves homeless women who are ready to leave the streets and move forward in their lives. With the help of YWCA staff, these women are working to reduce the barriers that have kept them from stable housing.

Gift bags can include a variety of useful and fun items to encourage each woman and brighten their holidays. It would be great to get gift bags of $35 value. There are currently 575 women in the program.

Fill a large, sturdy bag (the ladies love pretty, reusable bags!) with any of these types of items:

  • Gift cards ($5 or $10 to Bartell’s, Walgreens, etc)
  • Collapsible umbrellas
  • Night eye masks and ear plugs to make shelter living easier
  • Fun pieces of jewelry
  • Nail polish
  • Socks
  • Washcloths
  • Toiletry items (deodorant, disposable razor, hair products--African American hair products always requested-- tissues, chap stick, body spray, makeup)
  • Puzzle books with a pen or pencil (crossword puzzles, Sudoku)
  • Daily planners or pocket calendars
  • Hot tea, cider, or hot chocolate packets
  • Microwaveable popcorn, granola bars, or small bags of snacks
  • Your own creative ideas and touches are encouraged!

Do it yourself, or with friends, sponsor 1 bag, or 100!! We need almost 600 total!

Drop off bags to us between Dec. 10 th-14th between 8am-4pm at our borrowed

Space for the season on 23 rd and Jackson in the promenade complex in the lower level.

Look for signs!
