NEXT DOOR
September 25, 2008

We all know someone, a co-worker, a family member, a neighbor, who is experiencing domestic violence at this time. Next Door gives us a place to ask questions, refer someone for a safe haven, or to find a resource for prevention. NEXT DOOR Solutions for Domestic Violence is such a critical part of our community and we recognize them especially as we move into October, Domestic Violence Awareness month. Without Next Door, many affected by Domestic Violence would have absolutely no where to turn. Please support Next Door in their mission to end Domestic Violence - through your financial support or volunteering of your time. You may also donate items for the Holiday Boutique where hundreds of children and their moms have an opportunity, sometimes the only one they will have at the season, to give a gift to one another - a symbol of their love and commitment through these tough times.
