BCDCares: Supporting the WINGS Holiday Elves

Oct 19, 2020 | BCD Cares, Blog

WINGS, an organization devoted to ending domestic violence, provides housing, integrated services, education, and advocacy to the community. Providing support and supplies to adults and children in need, WINGS has been the bridge between families and independence for more than 30 years. Each year around the holiday season, the “holiday elves” of WINGS host a gift drive for families in need.

Social distancing and working from home are presenting a challenge for holding donation drives. With this in mind, WINGS strives to make this year’s event just as successful as ever. For this reason, BCD International is supporting WINGS by sending in a donation to help fill the empty boxes.

When asked about what drew BCD to support this cause, CEO Jeff Burgess said: “It’s tragic that there is such a need for organizations like WINGS to exist; however, it’s a blessing that they do. WINGS goes beyond being a safe shelter for victims; they are giving these people the tools of empowerment to make their own decisions regarding their lives.”

With “community” being one of BCD’s core values, having the opportunity to support such an impactful organization is a privilege. We value the opportunity to give back to our community, especially in times when it is needed most.
