The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Has Arrived!


Center for Hope and Safety’s Annual Giftwrapping Fun-raiser

We invite you, your company, your family, or organization to help us raise funds and awareness about our agency by giftwrapping for us at various retail locations.

How it works… Shoppers at various retail locations bring holiday gifts to our gift-wrapping table. You as our "elves", wrap the gifts and in return, shoppers make a donation to the agency.   The shifts are a minimum of 2 hours and we try to have at least 2 elves per shift. Teenagers are welcome to participate, only if an adult is present.

2016 locations include: Barnes & Noble at Riverside Square, Hackensack and Paramus and Paramus Park Mall.

The time slots at the various retail locations can be seen on our program, VolunteerSpot.  After you decide where and when you want to giftwrap, you will have to sign-up on VolunteerSpot to reserve that time and location.  This program DOES NOT share your email address with anyone.

2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Living in the shelter during the holidays can be especially difficult.  Many of the mothers we serve worry about how they will provide a holiday gift for their children, and sadly many have never received a gift of their own.  Also, former shelter residents, who are trying to build a violence-free life in a new home, are often struggling to make ends meet.  With your support, Center for Hope and Safety can distribute gifts to the women and children we serve and make their holiday season brighter.

Your donation of new and unwrapped holiday gifts would be greatly appreciated.  You can download our wish list which will help guide you through the process.  We also ask that gifts do not include items such as violent movies or games and toy knives and guns, as our organization operates on the principle of non-violence.

Donations are accepted from December 5 to December 19, Mondays - Fridays from 9am to 5pm, at our Community Center located at 12 Overlook Avenue in Rochelle Park.  For weekend or evening drop-offs please call to make special arrangements in advance.

Please contact us at 201-836-1075 or email Marta at with any questions, to confirm your interest, or schedule your donation delivery.
