News & Events
Our thanks go to all of those who have helped to move SAFE Shelter's mission forward in the last couple of months:
Local Belk employees for raising $576 for SAFE Shelter! For the fundraiser, employees donated money so that they could wear jeans to work. The fundraiser also consisted of two bake sales. Special thanks goes to Rukiya Droste, who organized the fundraiser. Rukiya organized the event in memory of her father, who was murdered by her mother. Her mother was not only abusive toward him, but to their children as well.
Verizon Foundation for the very generous grant for our Teen Dating Violence Awareness Campaign! And for the grant allowing our District Attorney’s Office to provide training on the new House Bill 911 Strangulation Law to local law enforcement!
TJ Maxx for the fantastic donation of new clothes and shoes for the shelter’s clothes closet!
Gulfstream for the generous grant to help offset shelter operation costs!
To the many amazing people working on this year’s CHAIRity, Etc. 2014 which will be held on Dec. 6 at The Plantation Club!
To Paula Deen, Honorary Lifetime member of the SAFE Shelter Board of Directors, for once again hosting this year’s CHAIRity Event!
And speaking of the Deen Family, huge shout out to Bobby Deen for donating a VIP suite at a recent Braves game for SAFE Shelter staff!
And last, but certainly not least, a huge thanks to the Auxiliary and SAFE Shelter Board Members who, as the committee for our future Youth Enrichment Services (YES Center) are working so hard to make this shelter addition a reality!
