Holidays at YWCA Cass Clay

BRIGHTEN THE HOLIDAY SEASON FOR A FAMILY IN NEED

Your holiday giving brings joy to YWCA Cass Clay. Trees, lights, wish lists, and gifts are just a few ways that we spread joy to our families during the holiday season. YWCA staff work hard to bring festive cheer, but we couldn’t do it without you.

Unique Boutique

Each December, YWCA’s Unique Boutique is brimming with new gifts for kids, teens, and moms, thanks to the generosity of our community. At no cost to them, women and children staying at the shelter find the perfect gift to give their immediate family members.

You can bring this special event to life by donating new gifts for a specific family calling YWCA home over the holidays.

To support a woman or family through Unique Boutique, please complete an interest form by Friday, December 2.


ADOPT-A-FAMILY

Adopt-a-Family is a holiday giving program for our Supportive Housing participants.

For many parents living in supportive housing, purchasing gifts for their children simply isn’t an option due to other critical financial priorities like food, utilities, and paying down debt. When you adopt a YWCA family, you bring joy by making gift-giving one less worry this holiday season; ensuring that every parent and child served by YWCA has a gift to open at the holidays.

Applications to Adopt-a-Family at YWCA have closed for this year thanks to an outpouring of community support! Please see the Fill a Home with Hope wish list and our FM Area Foundation Caring Catalog campaign (both below) for other ways to support YWCA this holiday season.


FILL A HOME WITH HOPE

Fill A Home With Hope is another giving program for our Supportive Housing participants. YWCA currently has 80 apartment units in the community dedicated to providing safety, stability, and hope to once-homeless individuals and families, many of whom are survivors of violence.

We invite you to Fill A Home With Hope by providing household basics for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and more.

This is a great opportunity for individuals, businesses, clubs and church groups!

We ask that all donations are delivered to YWCA Emergency Shelter (3000 S University Dr., Fargo) before Thursday, December 15. Scheduling a drop-off time is preferred using the link below.
