For over a decade, the Center for Victim Safety and Support (CVSS) has brightened the holiday season for victim-survivors of crime in Dutchess County through our annual Adopt a Family project. Through this project, survivor families are provided gift cards which allow them to enjoy the experience of shopping for each other, wrapping gifts, and sharing these special memories. Each household is also given a gas or grocery gift card to help offset the unplanned expenses that can often arise from the crimes committed against them.
Once again this year, CVSS is teaming up with Arlington Professional Fire Fighters Local 2393 to reach those in times of hardship in our community. We invite you to join our efforts to spread hope and cheer this holiday season, and contribute to sponsoring a family through a monetary or gift card donation.
At CVSS, we have seen the joy – and tears of gratitude – on our clients’ faces to receive this support. We are inspired by the selflessness and generosity of those who donate to Adopt a Family, year after year.
Please consider supporting a family in need, and helping us give survivors in our community a tangible reminder that they are not alone.
