DONATION DRIVE FOR HARBOR HOUSE
stuff the box
Coming in October 2023
You can help Stuff the Box with donations for Harbor House Domestic Violence Shelter at Catholic Charities.
What is Stuff the Box?
The Stuff the Box campaign helps gather personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, clothing basics, household items and more to help the children and women who come to Harbor House with literally nothing. In the past year, Harbor House provided nearly 11,700 days in shelter for 72 survivors and 102 children escaping domestic violence.
Harbor House Domestic Violence Shelter

- Healthy relationship education
- Referrals to community resources
