In support of Sandgate Women’s Shelter, we are accepting donation of NEW items, ranging from household, clothing, toiletry, children’s wear and more. While our donation drive has ended, we are happy to accept NEW items until the end of 2018. Please stop by our Guest Experience lounge to drop off any items you wish to donate.
WHY IS HILLCREST SUPPORTING SANDGATE?
As part of the recent renovations and changes at Hillcrest we are bringing both attention to a cause that is dear to our community and celebrates our new retailers by encouraging NEW purchases.
Often times women find the mall as a location to visit and escape in a safe space/seek refuge. We are bringing awareness to their services in our community and supporting our community.
We’re hoping when shoppers are discovering NEW retailers and picking out something for themselves, shoppers will remember those women who don’t have anything at all, and make a purchase, however small, to donate
Currently the shelter is in need of NEW items as women are often fleeing their homes with nothing. Receiving something NEW signifies that they are deserving something NEW. With all of our retailers here at Hillcrest at an easy access point to donate and purchase we thought this would be the perfect connection point.
