The YWCA will provide holiday assistance in the form of gift cards again this year. Gift cards give our clients the opportunity to shop for presents for their children and food for their holiday meal.

 With your donation of gift cards, you can help support our clients on their path towards healing by providing them the ability to make their own choices on what to purchase for the holidays. For survivors of domestic violence, one of the most empowering feelings often comes from being able to make decisions on their own.

 If you are interested in supporting our clients, simply purchase gift cards (see below) and mail to 405 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402 (if you order online, you can have them shipped directly to us) or bring to the YWCA between 9am and 4pm Monday through Friday. Our goal is to have gift cards here by Friday December 16th so we will have time to distribute them to our clients.

Suggested gift cards in amounts of $25 to $100:
Please send physical gift cards so we can distribute them to clients
  • Visa gift card
  • Walmart
  • Amazon
  • Target
  • Fred Meyer
  • Safeway
Thanks to donors like you, we can make the season a little brighter for families at the YWCA.
