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.
With delight our staff presented a check for $1070.00 to Rose Brooks Center this week. The check represents all of the donations given for our holiday gift wrapping as well as the money raised through the sale of our eco-friendly, fair-trade shopping bags. The check was presented to Marie Dispenza on behalf of Rose Brooks who said they were delighted to receive a check of this size right at the beginning of the year. Our heartfelt thanks to all of you customers who dropped donations into our box. You made a difference!
