Wedding Registry

Women’s Services has a ‘wedding’ gift registry at WalMart that contains items we are constantly in need of for our emergency shelter, The Greenhouse, as well as items clients need when starting over. You can purchase items we are in need of and they will automatically be sent to Women’s Services. You can find our registry by following this link and entering the first and last name as Women’s Services respectively and selecting Pennsylvania as the state.

The Gillian Ford Endowment Fund

In 2000, a bequest from the estate of Ruby E. Campbell provided funding for Women’s Services to establish an Endowment Fund. In 2008, the fund was renamed the Gillian Ford Endowment Fund in honor of Gilly Ford who served as Executive Director of WSI from 1998 till 2008.

The fund is managed by the Crawford Heritage Community Foundation, a nonprofit community foundation which serves all of Crawford County. The Foundation accepts gifts in any amount and in almost any form (cash, bonds, stocks or appreciated assets and property). The Foundation may also be designated a beneficiary (in whole or in part) of a life insurance policy, individual retirement account (IRA) or charitable trust. For more information, you can contact the Foundation’s Executive Director, Christian Maher, at (814) 336-5206.

By donating to this fund, you have the power to improve circumstances of adults and children whose lives have been affected by domestic and sexual violence. A gift to the Gillian Ford Endowment Fund will help ensure that shelter and counseling are available to people recovering from crisis. It will also support education and prevention programs aimed at breaking the cycle of abuse.

The following household items are always needed:

    • Laundry detergent
    • Cleaning supplies
    • Toiletries
    • Feminine hygiene products
    • Paper products
    • Pillows
    • Phone cards
