JCADA relies on the generosity of our supportive community of donors to fulfill our mission. If you’re looking for a way to get involved and support JCADA’s efforts, please consider hosting one of the fundraisers below. Contact Amanda Katz at email@example.com or 301-315-8040.
Collect Gift Cards: Some of JCADA’s clients are not able to meet their basic needs and therefore need assistance in the form of gift cards. By giving victims of power-based violence gift cards, as opposed to physical donations, JCADA is also giving them back the power to purchase what they want, something many of them lost during the abuse. Whether they’re $5 or $500, JCADA accepts all gift cards to any location such as:
Grocery stores (Giant, Safeway, Harris Teeter), CVS/Walgreens or other pharmacies, Uber gift cards, Lyft gift cards, Metro cards, Gas station cards, Target, Walmart, Moti’s Kosher Market, Kohl’s or any other clothing store, Haircut places, Manicures/Pedicures (self care for clients and family), Bed Bath & Beyond, and General visa gift cards
New or Used Metro Cards: We all know how challenging it can be to get around the Greater Washington DC area. By donating a new or used metro card, you give the gift of freedom back to victims and survivors of violence who would otherwise have difficulty getting around.
Shop & Support: Love to shop on Amazon? Well, by shopping Amazon Smile instead of just Amazon, a portion of your purchase will be donated to JCADA. Also consider purchasing something from JCADA’s Amazon Wish List, which helps our staff stay up to date on the ever-expanding best practices of trauma-informed care, and helps assist our clients with their basic needs.
Recycle Old or Broken Technology: Do you have any old, unused, or broken phones just lying around? Consider donating them to JCADA. How does it work? You simply donate your old, unused, or broken phones, iPads, tablets, or other piece of technology to JCADA (no cords necessary) and JCADA ships them off. The company we work with clears the phones of old data and breaks them down for parts. JCADA then gets a percentage of the proceeds. The newer the phone, the more JCADA gets! Live far away? Not a problem. JCADA can mail you shipping labels, which you can use to send off your donated phones for free!
Host a Parlor Meeting: Are you a part of a group that is interested in learning more about the dynamics of power-based violence, or simply more about JCADA and what we do for the community? Consider inviting JCADA to give one of its many trainings to your group. Educating the community is an important step in changing the culture, which allows power-based violence to continue.
