Stay Home – Donate As You Are!

There’s no place like home… so why leave? Make a difference in the lives of local women and children this September without leaving the couch! We invite you to participate in the 8th Annual Nights of Shelter NON-Gala Fundraiser by doing whatever you’d like! Round of golf? Sure! Spa Day? Oh Ya! Drinks with the girls? Why not? This year, rather than purchasing a ticket to another black tie affair, and paying the costs associated with preparations for such an event, we simply ask that you donate a night of shelter to a woman or child in Northumberland County. A night free from family violence. A night to feel safe. 

Participate in the 8th Annual Nights of Shelter Non-Gala by donating online, over the phone, by mail, or stopping in!
