#Giving Tuesday

In honor of Giving Tuesday we wanted to highlight some ways you can give back to our program.   We are GRATEFUL for our community support!   We are so blessed by giving communities!

Financial Needs:

    • Our Trenton facility is raising money for a new building.  We are approximately $200,000 away of being able to start breaking ground for the new facility.
      • We will be selling tickets for $1000.00 for a chance to win a brand new truck donated by Barnes-Baker Automotive
    • We are selling Domestic Violence Tax Credits.    These are 50% tax credits.    These funds are unrestricted which allow us to provide additional services to our clients.
      •  Please contact Tammy Taylor at 816-632-4900 or via email at ttaylor@ghwshelter.org
      • $100.00 Minimum required for purchase of these.
    • You can make a direct donation via our paypal link:

Physical needs:

  • Pillows (We put new pillows on their beds and give our clients their pillows to take with them when they move out)
  • Bath towels (Somehow these always disappear)
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Tampons
  • Baby wipes
  • Over the counter cough medicine
  • Paper towels
  • New Packages of Women’s Underwear sizes: 5, 6, 7, 8
  • Meat: ground beef, chicken, etc
  • Canned goods
  • Televisions  (we use old ones that we have donated)  **If someone wants to buy flat screens for each of our client rooms that would be awesome.
  • Gift cards so clients can go Christmas shopping for their kids
  • Taxi vouchers / Oats Bus Punch Cards

So many supportive community members and organizations make assumptions of what we ‘need’ instead of asking specifically how they can help meet our needs.   To highlight some items we are currently do not need:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Toothpaste /Toothbrushes
  • Bars of soap
  • Deoderant
  • Maxi Pads
  • Diapers
  • Sheets
  • Puzzles
  • Games
  • Toys
  • Coloring books / Colors
  • Travel size items such as soap, shampoo/conditioner
