On Wednesday, October 15th, R.B. Hunt Elementary School in St. Johns County, Florida, increased awareness to Domestic Violence by wearing purple and raising money for Betty Griffin House. Betty Griffin House is the local domestic violence and sexual assault organization and safety shelter.
It takes a community to make a difference and the faculty and staff at R.B. Hunt did just that. Upon entering the school visitors were informed of the event. They realized that this issue was important to the employees of the school and that they care about raising awareness to domestic violence.
I’d like to thank Heather Hamel and Jo Ellen Parkey who arranged the event. Jo Ellen also included it in their weekly newsletter. We can’t do it without wonderful people!
We still have 11 days left in October to raise awareness to Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We can make a difference.
Remember, if we can help just one victim, we’ve done our job.
Have a great week!
