October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
Every October, we recognize Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a variety of activities and events, as well as lots of posts on social media. This year we have the new Silent Witness Display available to post in our communities.
We’re looking for volunteers to help us get the word out to our community—can you help? If so, contact us at 1.276.625.o219 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank your for supporting FRC's October Awareness Walk, BINGO and Silent Auction!
For the October 2022 Domestic Violence Awareness month, FRC partnered with the community to sponsor an event to raise awareness and raise donations to support those experiencing domestic violence.
The event was held Saturday, October 22, 2022 in Hillsville, VA and was a great success!
Plans are already underway for our next Awareness event and will be announced on our website and Facebook page.
