Gift Giving Drive-thru Recap

House of Ruth's Annual Holiday Store provides new toys and gifts to survivors and their children at no cost. Survivors "shop" for their children and kids are able to choose the perfect holiday surprise for their parent.

For many families the Holiday Store is their only source of gifts and food for the holidays. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we provided multiple gifts and food baskets to 290 adults and children this past holiday season.

A special shout out to Sabrina Almaraz, Community Services Manager, and her team for coordinating and executing a successful Holiday Store Drive-thru event for survivor's of domestic violence and their families.
