Emergency Care Packages for Victims & Families of Domestic Violence

In partnership with the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation for Domestic Violence Awareness month in October 2023, Takoma Park Police will once again collect care packages and  items to be 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.  We are collecting starting Monday, October 2 through Friday, November 3, at the Takoma Park Municipal Building, 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park, Maryland.

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!
