The Holiday Shoppe at Eva’s Village
On December 13th, Eva's hosted our annual Holiday Shoppe at Eva’s Village, inviting all clients living in our programs to select from a wide array of gifts for their children. We were beyond grateful to receive over 3,000 donated gifts from individuals and families, companies, church and school groups, ensuring that the children of Eva’s Village will have the joyous holiday season they deserve - and that parents, who may not have the means to shop for gifts, are able to make the holidays merry for their children. Thank you to all our donors and volunteers who made this year's Holiday Shoppe a magical night!

Thank you for making our Holidays Merry and Bright!
The holidays are a special time of year, and we are so grateful to everyone who has helped us bring holiday cheer to the men, women and children of Eva's Village! Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, every adult in our shelters and residential programs has received Christmas gift bags chock full of warm-weather gear, toiletries and treats; and every person who comes to dine with us in our Community Kitchen on Christmas Day will also receive a gift bag. Altogether we have put together over 750 gifts bags - and we could not have done it without you!
It's not too late to make a Holiday Gift!
Many of our programs at Eva's Village, including our Community Kitchen, are funded almost entirely by personal donations. Without the generous support of our donors, we would not be able to provide over 1,300 meals a day to those in need; shelter men, women, and mothers with children who have nowhere else to go; and provide primary medical and dental care to improve the health and well-being of our community.
By making a gift to support our programs, you are ensuring that the thousands of men and women who come to us for help each year will continue to receive the services they need. For an even greater impact, consider joining Eva's Breakfast Club, our monthly giving program that provides sustaining funds for our breakfast service in the Community Kitchen and the breakfast meals we provide to all men, women, and children living in our programs.
Thank You to our Volunteers
We had so many wonderful volunteers assist us during this holiday season - from serving in our kitchen each day, to sorting and wrapping gifts, we could not have done it without you! We rely on the generosity of our volunteers year-round - please visit our Volunteer page for information on how to get involved throughout the year.
Thank you for supporting our mission, and wishing you and your loved ones the happiest of holidays!
