Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues,
As members of Family Shelter Service's Junior Board, we are committed to raising awareness and funds to help end domestic violence in our community.
We know from national statistics that there are approximately 200,000 victims of domestic violence in DuPage County alone. That's 1 in 4 women, 1 in 5 adolescents and 1 in 5 men, who will experience some form of abuse in their lifetime. These are neighbors, sisters, brothers, children and friends. And they all deserve to live a life free from violence.
Domestic violence knows no bounds and crosses all socio-economic, religious and cultural segments of our community. This issue affects us all and has consequences that go far beyond the individual being abused. Women, children and men in our community suffer the devastating effects of abuse.
We hope you will help us in reaching our fundraising goal of $5,000. Your support will assist those who seek services become the true heroes, as they begin to rebuild their lives free from abuse. We invite you to be part of their success by contributing to our team.
Together, we can make a difference in the fight against domestic violence. And remember, there’s a super hero in every one of us, you just have to find the courage to put on the cape!
Thank you so much for your support,
Jenny, Elizabeth, Angela, Danielle, Anique, Arlinda and Dyani
