The February special offering is for SAVE – Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments. SAVE provides alternatives to domestic violence through support services, advocacy and education, and assistance to domestic violence victims and their families to end the cycle of violence. Last year, SAVE answered almost 3,000 hotline calls, completed 111 Temporary Restraining Orders to keep batterers away from victims, reached more than 3,400 teen with dating violence prevention presentations, provided shelter to 250 women and children, and assisted 841 domestic violence victims with crisis intervention at local police departments. You can learn lots more about SAVE at http://save-dv.org/.
This offering will be officially received on February 9, and, as with all our special offerings, you can give at any time.
Thanks to your generosity, the January special offering will be for Tri-City Volunteers. Raised $700.
