Season of Giving

This season give joy, hope, and love to your community and be a part of Van Buren Center's Holiday Giving.

Nobody should have to spend the holidays in a homeless shelter. Help the Van Buren Center make the holidays memorable for the women, men, and children in shelter by giving your time, talent, and heart.
