DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH

OCTOBER IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH

Ending domestic violence requires attention and action all year round. But during October, we turn the spotlight on higher, events and campaigns to educate, promote prevention efforts and encourage more support for survivors. Call WCSC for more information and volunteer opportunities, 340.773.9272.

Visit the direct service and policy agencies on St. Croix and St. Thomas on #VIPurpleDay! The VI Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Council and the Family Resource Center on St. Thomas will be welcoming you to their offices today too.

Pick up a free purple ribbon at our main office/crisis center – 45 Fisher St., Christiansted, tour our site and learn more about how your support helps those who are impacted by violence in our community.

Join us at Plaza Extra West and KMart East for the Supermarket Wish List Campaign, to help survivors and families in need with your donations of toiletries and other essential items. Our volunteers will have copies of the wish list of much-needed items for you to take as you shop and free purple ribbons for you.

Donate a gently-used handbag filled with toiletries and other useful items to bring a smile and help a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or human trafficking. Drop off your contributions at the Peace Officer Training Standards Office – Queen Mary Highway and West Airport Rd., Frederiksted.

Join us for the 38th annual silent march and rally, in protest against domestic violence. We are marching in Christiansted this year, to honor the memories of murdered victims and in support of survivors. 

Join us as we promote DV awareness at Divi Casino, and celebrate the strength and courage of survivors of domestic violence. Wear purple and don’t forget your dancing shoes!

Our volunteers will be at Cost U Less, KMart East and Plaza Extra West for the final Saturday of our Supermarket Wish List Campaign. We’ll have purple ribbons and copies of the list with much-needed items for you to pick up and donate while you shop. Thank you for caring.
