LeeShore appreciates support

On behalf of the board of directors and staff of The LeeShore Center, I would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to the many community members, businesses and service agencies who generously donated their time and assistance to our agency during 2012.

Your continued support and caring makes a difference in the lives of victims experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault. During FY12, over 2300 volunteer hours were given to our agency to assist with projects, awareness and fundraising events, in-school violence prevention education, maintenance and repairs, and staff support. With your help, The LeeShore Center provided emergency shelter and transitional housing to 174 women and children, answered 481 crisis calls and assisted 483 individuals with walk-in services.

We are also very grateful to those who contributed direct services, financial assistance or donated in-kind items. Your donations and support help us ensure victim needs are met and program services are available.

Thank you for helping make our community a safer place to live. All of us at The LeeShore Center wish you a safe and peaceful holiday season and many blessings throughout the coming year!
