SAHELI Needs You!

SAHELI for Asian Families is a nonprofit organization based in Austin, Texas, that provides assistance to Asian families dealing with domestic violence and abuse. SAHELI helps and empowers Asian victims and survivors of domestic abuse, improves their access to services and increases community awareness of various forms of violence and oppression.

We know things are tough all around, and today’s financial times are hard on everyone. But please remember that these families are dealing with the same economic stress along with the effects of domestic violence and abuse. We at SAHELI are trying to do all we can to help them, and to do that, we also need your help as well. For some of our clients, the most basic items make a world of difference to them and their children. Even a gift card for $5 goes a long way. With the holidays around the corner, please consider donating the following items:

o Gift Cards
o Target
o Wal-Mart
o MT Supermarket
o Barnes & Noble
o Borders
o Movie theaters
o Hair Salons
o Nail Salons
o JC Penny
o Macy’s
o Kohl’s
o TJ Max
o Ross

Kids books (both English and language specific)
