Emergency Care Packages for Victims & Families of Domestic Violence

 

Many thanks to our community and City staff who donated many boxes of supplies for the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation for victims and families of domestic violence during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in November 2021. This event was extremely successful due to your generosity! We made three drop offs!

Please feel free to continue taking emergency care packages and needed items directly to the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation, 600 Jefferson Plaza Suite 500, Rockville, MD 20852; any and all items are appreciated from those who need them the most – thank you!!

In partnership with the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation for Domestic Violence Awareness month in November 2021, Takoma Park Police collected care packages and  items that were donated to meet the immediate, critical needs that directly impact the safety, wellness, and/or healing of a victim of domestic violence and/or their children.

Emergency care packages provide brand new toiletries and personal care items for each survivor of domestic violence and their children who walk through the doors of the Family Justice Center to receive services. Brand new stuffed animals, games, toys and books are also provided to every child who goes to the Family Justice Center. Please note that items donated should be new and unopened, if applicable.

For questions, please email cathyp@takomaparkmd.gov

Thank you for your generosity!
