Domestic Violence Awareness Month Donation Drive

October is recognized as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). To raise awareness about domestic violence, we are partnering with AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, Inc.) to host a month-long donation drive.

AVDA's mission is to promote violence-free relationships and social change by offering alternative choices to end violence and domestic abuse. For more than 35 years, their mission and services have provided critical support to thousands in our area.

For the many individuals that need their help, AVDA provides a Community of Hope through their state-certified domestic violence center that offers a comprehensive array of services for all victims of domestic violence including; a 24 hour crisis hotline, emergency and transitional housing, advocacy, counseling and support to help them live violence-free and self-sufficient lives. They also work throughout the community to educate and engage people of all ages in our commitment to prevent violence.

 

Donations can be dropped of at the Management Office located in the hallway at the West Main Entrance near H&M Monday-Friday 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. or after 5:00 p.m. or on the weekends with Security by calling 561-736-7908.
