#GivingTuesday is an international charitable giving day on the Tuesday after Black Friday.

WHBW is excited to announce than an anonymous donor will be matching your donations up to $5,000!

All money raised will support WHBW’s 24/7 Emergency Programs such as our Hotline, Emergency Housing & Relief From Abuse Orders. There’s no one face of domestic violence. Violence knows no race, gender identity, age, income or education status, religion, or sexual orientation. Support from the community is vital to continue providing these services.

Ways you can give:

1. Donate online:

2. Donate directly on our Facebook page with #Donate by GoodWorld. For every $20 donation on our Facebook page, GoodWorld will donate an additional dollar!!
For example comment on any Facebook post, ‘#Donate $20′ (or any USD amount) and we’ll reply with a short, one-time form to complete your donation.

3. Call WHBW with a donation at 802-658-3131!

4. Take a selfie! Yes a selfie! We want to show off our amazing group of supporters and volunteers. So take a selfie and tag WHBW on Facebook, TwitterInstagram or email it to us at and write why you support WHBW!

Example: “I support Women Helping Battered Women because….”

Holiday Giving Program

by WHBW on October 29, 2015

Family’s who are fleeing abusive relationships are often left without a home, and without the financial resources to find enough food, let alone buy presents for their children.

Sponsor a child by fulfilling their holiday wish list. We will provide you with the age and gender of the child and the option to buy up to four gifts, not to exceed $100. If you represent a business or organization, please consider sponsoring a whole family. Volunteers can also help with organizing gifts at our administrative office.

We ask that all gifts come unwrapped, but gladly accept any extra wrapping paper or ribbons, so the mothers can be involved in the wrapping process.
To get involved call 802-658-3131 ext 2010.Holiday Giving Program
