Steps to End Domestic Violence is searching for donors able to provide either gift cards or funding with which to purchase them, in hopes of fulfilling the holiday wishes of children who have benefitted from domestic violence programming and services in Chittenden County.

The organization’s Holiday Giving Program is currently underway and there is a need for gift cards. Toys are suitable for young kids, but for older children, gift cards are a great way to give them presents this holiday season.

For more information, including an updated list of needed cards, visit, call 802-58-1996 or email

Formed in 1974, Steps to End Domestic Violence, formerly Women Helping Battered Women, assists in the transition to a safe, independent life for all those who have been affected physically, sexually, emotionally, or economically by domestic abuse, and promotes a culture that fosters justice, equity and safety.
