Beginning in 2006, the Woodcroft Women’s Club has been collecting donations for DCRC. The shelter provides a safe place for women and children of domestic or sexual violence. The DCRC shelter houses over two hundred women and children every year, requiring many items to keep the household running. DCRC relies on gifts from the community to make stays at the shelter as comfortable as possible.

New and gently used household items are always needed for the home including:

  • Domestics (sheets, blankets, towels, kitchen items)
  • Small Kitchen Appliances (coffee pots, blenders, toasters)
  • Paper Products (paper towels, napkins, toilet paper)
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Toiletries
  • Baby Items
  • Clothing for Women and Children

To contact group leader, click on Contacts above and look for DCRC under Group Chairs.

Thank you all so much for your continued donations and support!!
