Take A Stand against domestic violence by sharing warmth with women and children in shelter at Rose Brooks Center
As the weather gets cooler, perhaps with some frost on the ground, we start pulling out sweaters and jackets and coats to keep us warm throughout the winter. For many, home is a place of love, warmth and comfort. But for millions of women and children, home is any but that. Every 9 seconds, a woman in the U.S. is beaten or assaulted by a current or ex-significant other.
Our 6th annual coat and sweater drive for Rose Brooks Center gets underway Monday, October 12th. Our temperatures have stayed warm enough that many of us haven't pulled out sweaters and coats yet. However, now is a great time to dig in your closets to find coats and sweaters that you are ready to share.
