WestCare's Christmas In July W/Partners Raises Much Needed Items For LV Families

WestCare Nevada has teamed up with community partners Crazy Pita and Nevada Title Company for a ‘Christmas in July Drive,’ which will benefit the women and children at the nonprofit’s Women and Children’s Campus. The drive will begin on July 1 and end on July 31.

Community members are asked to donate new and unwrapped baby items, including toys, blankets and clothing, as well as women’s clothing and new toiletries. Items can be dropped off at donation boxes located inside any three of the valley’s Crazy Pita restaurants or at a Nevada Title Company office branch location:

Other items needed include: Changing tables, bouncy chairs, play packs, art easels for toddlers, little creative work stations, and Baby Einstein toys with educational learning tools and games. Women and children housed at the WestCare campus will benefit from the drive, which is taking place prior to a renovation planned for the facility’s nursery on Aug. 22.

The Women and Children’s Campus  is a 33,453 square-foot facility that provides clients and their children emergency shelter, food, employment assistance, case management, education, and core supportive and wraparound services. 

“We are renovating our facility little by little, and given that our next project is the nursery, it made sense to reach out to the community for support in this way,” WestCare Director of Development Darlene Terrill said. “Our clients are so grateful for all of the community support. It means the world to them and to us.”
