LOUISVILLE – KY, November 28, 2016, Almost 1,000 Kentuckiana adults and children surviving intimate partner abuse and sexual violence will rely on The Center for Women and Families’ (CWF) holiday gift card drive as the sole means of providing gifts for loved ones this holiday season.


The Center for Women and Families is pleased to announce that Republic Bank is partnering together to sponsor the 2016 CWF holiday gift card drive and will serve as drop off locations for the cards from November 30 through December 20.


The Center’s gift card drive asks individuals, businesses, and community groups to purchase and deliver gift cards in increments of $25 in lieu of bringing gifts to the shelter.  Giving gift cards allows parents to purchase gifts the children need or want the most.  Giving choices and control back to a domestic or sexual assault survivor gives them empowerment.  That might be the best gift to a survivor of all.  Gift cards also allow residents living in an emergency shelter to safely shop online for their holiday gifts and nonresidential support groups to shop together on designated shopping days.


Shopping online just makes so much sense for our clients who cannot safely leave our shelter to shop because of threats to their lives and the lives of their children.” says Marta Miranda, President/CEO at The Center for Women and Families. “Giving survivors the power that comes along with making decisions about which gifts will bring the most joy to their family is what The Center’s mission is all about,” Miranda added.


The Center prefers gift cards from department stores and retailers such as Kohl’s, Meijer, Target and Wal-Mart.  In addition to these retailers, The Center also welcomes Visa/MasterCard gift cards.
