Donations are essential to help with funding our daily operations throughout the year, including the holiday season. Our Safe Houses are usually at full capacity over the holidays as this is often a time of year when family stress piles up, finances are tight and these frustrations lead to violence at home. In a year, the Marjaree Mason Center serves over 6,000 adults and children affected by domestic violence and we are proud that 81 cents from every dollar goes directly to support our client services. You can support our efforts by making a donation online or mailing a check addressed to: Marjaree Mason Center, 1600 M Street, Fresno, CA 93721.
Through our annual Trees of Hope program, our community helps fulfill holiday wishes for those affected by domestic violence. Visit our Trees of Hope gift registry to grant holiday wishes for our clients and their children. You can grant these wishes through either of the following ways:
- Order online (for delivery by December 16th) to: Marjaree Mason Center, 1600 M Street, Fresno CA 93721
- Shop locally and drop it off in-person, 12/10-12/18 from 12:00pm-6:00pm daily at 255 Bullard Ave., Fresno, CA (previously the Milan Institute, now the future home for Marjaree Mason Center)
We ask that gifts arrive unwrapped - they will be sorted to be given directly to the child, teen or adult that asked for that gift. If you can provide wrapping paper or gift bags with your gift, the family members can be a part of the giving making your gift an extra special part of their holiday!
Marjaree Mason Center safe houses are consistently at capacity during the holiday season. Help make sure our most needed items are continually stocked, allowing us to best serve victims of domestic violence. Some items that are constantly in need include brand new twin and full size linens, pillows, towels, full-size shampoo/conditioner, and baby products/diapers (especially sizes 4, 5, and 6). If you or your group are interested in hosting a donation drive this holiday season, please contact us at (559) 237-4706.
We also welcome general gift donations from the community to make sure every person we serve gets a holiday gift. Donate brand new toys and clothing for girls and boys, newborn to 17 years old; or help mom feel beautiful again with brand new beauty products and accessories. Due to the nature of our agency, we will not accept toy guns or toys that promote violence.
Donations are accepted at our downtown location (1600 M Street) Monday - Friday between 8:30am- 4:30pm.
For more information, contact Marianne Johnson at (559)487-1317 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some groups or businesses – large and small - hold events of their own to benefit victims of domestic violence. For example, annual toy drives, children's Christmas parties, wine tastings, golf tournaments and hosted parties – all to benefit the Marjaree Mason Center. To host a Fundraiser this holiday season complete our Fundraising Commitment Form and submit it to email@example.com. All signage with MMC logo must be approved prior to the event.
