Drive for Charity Event Raises Money for Crisis Connection

Employees at our National Headquarters participated in a Drive for Charity event to provide gift cards to our local Crisis Connection. Crisis Connection provides support for victims of domestic abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual violence. Many of these victims are forced to flee their homes with little to none of their belongings with them. National employees donated $1,125 in gift cards to be used for very basic items like personal grooming supplies, food, school supplies, gasoline, and shelter. Anyone who donated a gift card could add their name to a dove ornament and hang it on our charity tree. Doves were chosen as the ornament because they are the symbol for Crisis Connection and also represent peace.
