Safe Harbor Holiday Giving

Holiday Giving Program

Each December, we accept gifts of new clothing, toys, and household items for the individuals and families we serve. Many women who have suffered domestic abuse have no resources for the holidays, and our clients are grateful for your gifts.

Because of your kindness, last year we were able to help more than 175 women and children who otherwise may not have found joy in the holiday season. This year, we will be providing gifts on Christmas Day for all clients receiving services at our Greenville, Anderson, and Oconee shelters, as well as clients in our transitional housing, counseling and child and family therapy programs.

Our holiday giving program is always exciting and inspiring. We’re fortunate to work with each of you, and are lucky to be the elves who deliver your love and compassion to the families receiving services at Safe Harbor.

Adopt-A-Family: To protect our client’s confidentiality, and because we cannot always tell in advance the number of women and children who will need assistance, we are unable to identify specific individuals or families to adopt. If you would like to provide gifts for a family, please sponsor one or more individual women, and several children for us to group as families on your behalf.

If you would like to participate, please email holidayprogram@safeharborsc.org with the number of women and children/youth you would like to adopt, as well as the age and gender of each child. Staff will provide details to aid you throughout the process, including age-appropriate gift ideas, delivery locations/dates, and other info. If you do not have access to email, please call 864-720-1839 and leave a message with your name, number, and the best time to reach you. Safe Harbor staff will return your call.

We request that individuals/groups spend approximately $100 per person, but we are grateful for gifts in any amount. Every age group including adults can use underwear and socks, as well as winter clothing (hats, gloves, scarves, robes, pajamas, jackets). Women and teens appreciate gift cards in $20 increments. Please see our “holiday gift guide” below for more details!

Please do not gift wrap items or put them in sealed boxes.

  • Please mark each box or bag with the age and if appropriate, the gender of each child. For women, please indicate the size/size range.
  • If you have gift cards, please put them in sealed envelopes – not in gift boxes or bags. Please write the dollar amount on the card or envelope.
