The women we serve span many ages and situations, but all face difficult circumstances, especially during winter. There are 3 ways you can help the families in this year’s Giving Tree:

Amazon Registry
Walmart Registry
Donate financially – through the link, by phone (314) 827-4039, or via mail 11780 Borman Dr. Suite 128, St. Louis 63146

Our Women’s Care Connect staff works with many women throughout the year, ensuring they have the right resources to meet their needs. This time of year can be especially hard for them as they struggle to provide basic necessities, much less the stressful demands of Christmas.

Our Giving Tree program has doubled in size this year: 51 women need your help. They have made the courageous choice to choose life despite great challenges, and YOU can be their families’ Christmas angel. Your family or company can even “adopt” a mother and family from the Tree. Give us a call (314) 827-4039 today to set it up. Please note that all gifts must be in our office by Friday, December 8th. No time to shop? Donate financially, and we will take care of the shopping.

Who are the mothers registered for our 2017 Women’s Care Connect Giving Tree? Meet them below. If you would like to learn more about our clients, the Giving Tree, or any other aspect of Women’s Care Connect, please call our office (314) 827-4039 or email Kristin@CoalitionforLifeSTL.com.
