Will You Help?

Lots of gifts

Triangle Physicians for Women and InterAct of Wake County are teaming up to help women and children who have been in an abusive situation have a better Christmas.

Interact

We invite you to participate in this wonderful opportunity to give back to our community in such a warm, thoughtful way this holiday season.  InterAct is a private, nonprofit United Way agency that provides safety, support, and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. InterAct also promotes violence-free relationships and communities through collaboration, public information, education, and advocacy. InterAct is the only confidential domestic violence prevention program serving Wake County’s twelve municipalities.

All items will need to be collected at Triangle Physicians for Women’s office by Tuesday, December 9th to ensure a timely delivery.

There’s also an option to contribute a monetary donation to Interact.  All donations are tax deductible.  Interact is a Non-Profit 501C3 organization.  A thank you letter will be mailed to you in addition to a tax statement at the end of January as proof of your contribution.

Holiday Bazaar Overview
At the Bazaar, children are provided with an opportunity to design holiday arts and crafts, “shop,” and wrap a gift basket to give to their mother for the holidays.  While the children are completing their activities, mothers are taken to another area of the building where they can “shop” for toys and gifts for their children.  Each mother is sent home with wrapping paper, gift bags, bows, tape and labels to prepare gifts for their children.  Each family also is given a disposable camera to capture their holiday memories.

New, unwrapped gifts only, no violent toys please.
Toys at the Bazaar are categorized as follows:
Ages 0 – 3
Ages 3 – 6
Ages 7 – 9
