Find your own special way to ensure that the families you support throughout the year have a joyous & heartfelt holiday season!

The holidays are a special time of year; a time of peace, harmony and goodwill. Sadly, this isn’t true for everyone, particularly individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence.

To help these families have a holiday season filled with warmth and joy, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center is once again sponsoring its annual Holiday Giving Program. The program allows you to give in a way that works best for your family or business. If you would like to donate, you can choose to participate in one or more of the three programs detailed below. Our families appreciate your support as do all of us here at the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center.

Gift Cards

Gift Cards help meet the urgent needs of survivors of domestic violence, not only during the holidays but throughout the year. Suggested gift cards are for grocery stores, retail stores, and gas stations.

Gift cards can be purchased online by clicking the link below or dropped off or mailed to the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center at either:

5 Market Square, Suite 109
Amesbury, MA 01913
2 Harris Street
Newburyport, MA 01950

Click here to purchase a gift card and we will pick up gift cards for groceries, gas or retail locations on your behalf.

Holiday Book Drive

Our Holiday Book Drive provides books that help heal and bring joy to families in need.

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, visit Jabberwocky Bookshop in Newburyport to see a selection of recommended  book requests for you to fulfill.

Books can be purchased and left at Jabberwocky. A member of our staff will pick up the purchased books at a later date.

Jabberwocky Bookshop:
50 Water St. Newburyport, MA


UPDATE: ALL our families have been adopted this year! We are grateful for the generous support of so many community members.

Adopt-a-Family matches you or your organization with a family in need who is being served by the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center. When you register, we will provide you with a packet of information which includes the family’s story, ages, gender, and clothing sizes of family members, and a brief list of the family’s gift requests.
