Personal safety is a hot topic these days, particularly in the middle of a pandemic. But, for many, personal safety goes way beyond talk of viruses, masks, hand sanitizer and vaccines.
For some, personal safety is a hard, life-changing decision made for themselves and their children. It’s often a life and death situation for women and children, and even men, caught in a cycle of abuse.
While we hear stories in the news, it became real to me when three women were murdered in our small town last year. The pressures of lockdowns, job loss and everyday stressors were too much and three women lost their lives at the hands of an abuser.
That is why I support Safer Path Family Violence Shelter, a safe haven for all those individuals suffering from domestic violence and sexual assault.
From the cashier at a local gas station asking me about restraining orders to keep her safe once her ex gets released from prison to another woman telling me how she overcame and escaped long-term abuse, these are real people with real lives and children who are affected.
Safer Path offers a respite from domestic violence and an array of resources for our community. I am proud to be able to direct those in need to counselors and services at Safer Path. Yet, all great organizations like Safer Path, need our support from people like you and me to make a life-changing difference. That’s why I serve on the Safer Path Board of Directors and our companies donate to important fundraisers like Pulling for Safer Path, Sporting Clay Shoot.
The PM Group and Noisy Trumpet donated $1,400 in gift cards and $1,000 cash for their silent auction at this event to help raise needed funds for these important services. Every donation helps to sustain life-giving services like those at Safer Path.
Won’t you join me in committing time and resources to end abuse in all its forms?
