Golden Z’s hold “shower” for Women’s Aid

It could be your mother, your sister, your cousin or friend but most likely, it’s someone you would never expect. In fact, it may not even be a woman — it could be a man.

Every single day women and men in the United States are victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. Some people may not get help before it’s too late. Others may suffer their whole lives. There are others who realize they need help and turn to organizations like Women’s Aid Service (WAS) which covers Clare, Gratiot and Isabella counties.

WAS runs an emergency shelter and provides crisis intervention for domestic violence victims. Like many other agencies, their needs are great and funds are short.

The MMCC chapter of the Golden Z’s are currently holding a “shower” for the  Women’s Aid Service (WAS) shelter. A list of items needed is below. Items that are highlighted in yellow are the items that are needed most.

Women's Aid Shower ItemsFor more information or to donate to the “shower,” contact Sarah Gariglio, MMCC Golden Z Club Advisor at (989) 773-6622 ext. 241. Donations need to be submitted before April 2.
