How Does Domestic Violence affect the workplace? Our Annual Giving Back Event Supports YWCA Domestic Violence Division

 

Give a Gal a Lift!Give-A-Gal-A-Lift

 
Join us for our Annual Giving Back Event! Grand Rapids Community Foundation welcomes us again this year. The historic GRCF building offers an open and comfortable area for networking.

Did you know an overwhelming number of assailants use company resources; computers, cars, phones… to track or stalk their victims? Becky Diffin, Director of Supportive Housing of Grand Rapids YWCA, shares examples of women who have had to abandon their careers because of the violence they endured at home and who, with the assistance of the YWCA have successfully transitioned into new careers and happier lives. Learn more about what we can do as women in business to support the YWCA’s efforts to decrease domestic violence in our community.

The YMCA Domestic Crisis Center accepts those who are fleeing domestic violence situations. The Center attempts to provide shelter and items of need to help ease the discomfort of living in a place that is not ‘home’.

We are looking for undergarments for men, women, and children for victims of sexual assault.

We are looking for men’s boxers/briefs (sm, med, lg), children’s underwear (any size), and women’s underwear (non-brief type) sized 5-8.
