EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge
Individually and as families, we have grown from survivors into champions. With the help of Family Shelter Service, we are no longer victims. With your help and the help of the Allstate Purple Purse Campaign and DuPage Foundations, Partners In Philanthropy, we commit ourselves to raising funds and awareness for all those in our community who seek to escape domestic violence.
The video here contains our stories and our voices. Our journeys may be different, but our futures are now free from violence. We want victims of domestic violence who live in our neighborhoods to know that there are laws to protect them and their children, and a network of people who care, like Allstate and DuPage Foundation and that they have a safe place to go when they need it. That is why we will support "Be a Hero for Hope 10K/5K" on October 25th — and we hope you will too. By donating, participating and sharing this information, you too will be involved in changing someones story, from victim to champion.
Please support our team and our mission.
