Donations and sponsorship

Gifting at Christmas

These holidays, the Domestic Violence Action Centre is asking the community to give a gift with meaning by making a donation to DVAC in lieu of Christmas gifts.

Your sponsorship may provide essential items like meals, clothing, tech, medicine and taxi vouchers, or a night of emergency accommodation with essential food and toiletries, or security cameras to a woman and her children experiencing domestic and family violence. Big or small, every donation will mean so much to people who have fled unsafe homes over the holidays. Your friends and family will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
