Christmas comes once a year, but our community’s needs are year-round
This year, Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services (WCYFS) will host its seventh annual Christmas in July donation drive. Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services is San Joaquin County’s primary provider of free, confidential shelter and services specifically designed to meet the needs of homeless and runaway youth and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. This drive brings awareness to the fact that, unfortunately, violence and victimization occurs year round. It encourages the community to support homeless youth and victims by making monetary or in-kind donations throughout the month of July.
