Did you know October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month?

The Domestic Violence Center in Columbia is having their annual fundraiser, Hope Gala, October 14th. The goal is to raise 125,000 this year.

Domestic violence is a big problem and so many don't realize there is help out there for them. The Domestic Violence Center is trying to change all that. So many times women in these situations feel they have no rights or they have been beaten up and put down so often they don't know any different. These are difficult situations to break free of and centers such as DVC are in need of your support to help these women and children.

The DVC has services such as helplines, shelters, counseling and legal aid, but they need your donations to help keep them going. Invest in the life-changing opportunities offered to clients of the DVC by supporting the Hope Gala this year!

Other ways to support the DVC are to make a contribution or even donating your old cell phone. Please check the website for more information.

All contributions are tax deductible.

Thank you
