Magdalene’s Gifts & Gatherings is a retail enterprise supporting their mission through sale of artisan-designed products. All net proceeds of Magdalene’s Gifts & Gatherings are used to bring awareness around the issue of sex trafficking in our area, to provide and enhance services for survivors and to support Magdalene’s House, their long-term residential program for the recovery of adult women survivors. The shop is also run and managed 100% by volunteers.

In addition to reaching over 2,000 community members with information about how to spot, report, and protect against trafficking, Magdalene’s also had the opportunity to partner with several organizations to help women get the help they need, often escaping dangerous situations.

Magdalene’s is blessed to feature artwork and handmade gifts by survivors and compensate them for their products — The Freedom Collection. In turn, these women save money and are able to live independently.  By shopping the Freedom Collection you are helping survivors in our area learn how to live sustainably independent, with a confident zeal for life.

As they plan for the coming year, Magdalene’s will be helping survivors by equipping them with job-readiness skills, engaging them in their professional and vocational pursuits toward economic independence, and through referrals.

Wrap your Christmas shopping up and Magdalene’s and give back while you buy a gift your loved ones will cherish. The meaning behind the gifts at Magdalene’s is what the season and gift giving is all about.
