Holiday Gift Program

Help make the holidays a little brighter for people experiencing violence!

Tubman's annual Holiday Gift Program is here! Every year, your generosity illuminates a path towards safety, hope and healing by removing the barriers and stress to individuals and families experiencing crisis.

During the 2022 holiday season, with your generous support, Tubman’s Holiday Gift Program was able support more than 375 people with gifts to celebrate the holidays with their loved ones. This year, as over the past 25 years, we need your help to make the holidays bright for individuals and families in crisis. You can provide comfort and peace of mind by donating gifts and monetary donations to the Holiday Gift Program.

Below you will find the types of gifts most needed this year, as well as, donation details and how to support our financial goals.
