I AM PARTICIPATING IN Generosity Brooklyn
IN SUPPORT OF Center Against Domestic Violence
I am really excited to be a part of this race and support awareness and solutions that help women and families find stability, confidence and the much-needed resources they need to thrive. This center not only offers emergency shelters and counseling for survivors, but focuses on educational and preventative programs for teens and children. I thank everyone in advance for any and every bit you can contribute to help me meet and exceed the goal.

EVER WONDER WHERE YOUR
GENEROUS DONATIONS GO?
MAKE SURE CHILDREN ARE PREPARED FOR THE SCHOOL DAY. SUPPLY SCHOOL MATERIALS - PENS, BOOKS, ETC. - FOR ONE SHELTERED CHILD.
PROVIDE A WARM WINTER COAT AND BOOTS FOR A CHILD MADE HOMELESS BY DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
FAMILIES COME TO THE SHELTERS EMPTY HANDED. THE EMERGENCY FOOD AND HOUSEHOLD SUPPLIES SUPPORT THEM UNTIL THEY CAN GET ON THEIR FEET. NO ONE SHOULD BE IN DANGER OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BECAUSE THEY ARE HUNGRY.
