Shop our Amazon Charity List to help victims of crime and trauma as they transition into safety. Too often, access to community resources can take days to start, and families need immediate access to basic necessities. All items donated from this list will directly assist victimized families as they navigate the aftermath of crime and trauma such as domestic violence, fires, homicides, or sexual assault.
Donation items for our Children Who Witness Violence Drop-In Center may also be purchased directly off of the program’s Amazon Charity List, or dropped off at any VAP location Monday through Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm. If you have questions about our needs or the program, please contact Ari Barrett, Director of Strategic Partnerships, at 330.376.7022 ext. 212 or [email protected]. Thank you for your support!
