Miss Print of Munster and Hammond is once again hosting an Angel Tree to benefit Have House Domestic Violence Shelter.  The friendly staff of Miss Print invites you to stop by and pick a card from the tree.  Each card has an item which the Shelter needs.  Among the items listed are toiletries, toilet paper, office supplies and other staples used by the Shelter to help domestic violence victims.   Donations are accepted during normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9-Noon on Saturday(Munster location only).  Miss Print has two locations, 8244 Calumet Avenue, Munster, Indiana and Miss Print Sign Company at 6931 Calumet Avenue in Hammond. Donations are accepted at either location. Please follow Miss Print on Facebook for more information about them.

The Gazette spoke with Lisa Wein, Executive Director of Haven House, to discuss her holiday wish list.  Lisa told us that the greatest need with winter coming is twin size blankets.  Donations of gently used clothing items for women and children are always welcome also.   Volunteers are always needed at Haven House and you can find more information about volunteering on the Haven House Website. Donations are also accepted at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church located at 7132 Arizona Street in Hammond and the Jean Shepherd Community Center located in Dowling Park.

The purpose of Haven House is to provide safe housing, the essentials for everyday living, and support services to female adults and their children who are victims of domestic/sexual assault and to assist them in breaking the cycle of violence through education, counseling, advocacy, referral and skill building techniques.  Haven House, Inc, founded in 1983 and located in Hammond, IN. is a 24-hour emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their dependents. Haven House provides services to Hammond, East Chicago, Whiting, Munster, Griffith, and Highland, which comprises a significant geographic area of Northwest Indiana.
