During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
During this ongoing crisis, Women Giving Back has expanded its operations and begun operating a drive-thru food distribution every Saturday morning- we have served 786 households with 15,720 lbs of food to date! In order to continue these operations, we are relying on donations from the community, both monetary and in-kind. Monetary donations can be made here: https://womengivingback. org/donate/
Snack packs are an option - a guide is attached if needed.. If you choose to make snack packs, please keep in mind that the packs are meant to provide 2 days worth of meals, and therefore should have 2 of each item (2 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts, 2 snacks, 2 drinks).We are also collecting donations of non-perishable food items, diapers, wipes, toiletries, formula, paper towels, etc. to get to families in need as schools in the area shut down. Anyone who wishes to donate such items can do so through our Amazon wish list, or can drop off in the bin behind our warehouse. At the moment, we are most in need of diaper wipes, all sizes of diapers, formula, baby food, and individually wrapped or small containers of snacks, juice, or milk. One additional way to help is to make activity packs for children that we can pass out with the food. Examples of items to include in these packs are below:

WGB’s mission is to support women and children in crisis, and build their confidence and self-esteem, by providing great quality clothing at no cost, assisted by caring and committed volunteers who offer personalized service and interaction.
The WGB Store is filled with wonderful clothing, accessories, shoes and more for our clients that are currently in shelters or transitional programs. We open the second Saturday of each month or by appointment. Clients are qualified by their Case Workers. Our clients leave standing much straighter and prouder than when they walk in.
We'll work with your schedule.
