For the 2021 holiday season, North Threads in Perham will be a drop off location for Mary’s Place gifts. Mary's Place is a safe place for survivors of domestic abuse.

Currently six women and nine children are in need of supplies. The children range from 6 months to 13 years old.

Here's how you can help for the holidays:

  • Give a gift. The priorities this year are crayons, small art supplies, puzzles, chapstick/lip balm, ladies toiletries, hair brushes and hair ties.
  • View full needs list at lakescrisis.com/needs or shop the Amazon Wishlist at amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/GW92JCXC777D . Many of these items can be purchased at local stores.
  • Purchase a gift card. These are always helpful to help shelter residents shop for personal holiday gifts for their families and fulfill immediate needs year-round.

You can drop off gifts at North Threads until Dec. 22. The store is located at 103 East Main Street, Perham.
For more information on ways to help, call 218-347-0124.
