MSP IS HONORING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
(DVAM) OCTOBER 2021
My Sister’s Place (MSP) will honor Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a series of meaningful events aimed at engaging community members, stakeholders, donors, and partners to raise awareness in an effort to end domestic violence and empower lives
Friday, October 1, Purple Family Party.
This family-oriented event will include special entertainment – most beloved Great Zucchini! Families are often not able to leave the shelter to experience festivals and similar events. Held at the Shelter.
This special opportunity is aimed at raising awareness among supporters that seeking help through emergency shelter is often the hardest and yet bravest choice to end domestic violence. Leaving everything behind to improve one’s life requires enormous sacrifice.
Saturday, October 8 (2nd ANNUAL HBCU GOLF TOURNAMENT)
The group is holding this event to raise awareness and is fundraising for My Sister’s Place (MSP) and Men Stopping Violence (MSV) During the Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Thank you for being great partners!
