Take action against domestic violence in October!By Administrator
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month! In honor of this month, Beyond Belief Network encourages BBN teams and other volunteer groups to host events that bring awareness to domestic violence. Check out our guide for more information, suggested items for collection, and event ideas including:
- Clean and screen. Host a movie screening where the entrance fee is a toiletry item needed by a local shelter. Collect items such as shampoo, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, hair brushes, towels, toothpaste, deodorant, and shower gel. For help finding a shelter near you, use www.shelters.welfareinfo.org as a resource.
- Give Back. Volunteer at a local domestic violence shelter. These shelters often have both short-term and long-term volunteer opportunities. Your group could prepare a meal, help sort donations, or assist with administrative tasks. It’s a great opportunity for teams looking for a monthly service project.
Remember, BBN teams! Submit your event report and pictures of your members in action in order to raise your team’s level. If you have questions or need help, contact us via our webform.
