Precious Life Shelter appreciates every donation that is made whether it is financially or through charitable donation of goods. These donations make a difference in each of the lives of the 100+ women who come to us every year. Without the help of all our volunteers and donors, we would not be operational. We cannot fully express our gratitude for your donations.
