Chevy Chase is collecting gifts for victims and child witnesses of domestic violence, in partnership with the Montgomery County Family Justice Center, the Montgomery County Abused Persons Program and The Betty Ann Krahnke Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence.

Gifts and cards can be dropped off at the town office at 4301 Willow Lane by Friday, Dec. 14. Town staff encourage early delivery.

To help:

1. Drop off gift cards from stores such as Target, Marshall’s, Kohl’s, Ross, Giant or Sears and take them to the town office.

2. “Adopt” a family with specific ages, sizes and needs. Gifts can be tagged for the recipients, wrapped, and brought to the town office. To adopt a family, email Cathy Wolf at cathryn.wolf@montgomerycountymd.gov or leave a message at 240-773-0406.

3. Unwrapped, new items can be brought to the town office. They will be delivered to the Family Justice Center to be given to domestic violence victims.
