The Mason Bluebonnet Study Club will observe Domestic Violence Awareness Month on October 18, 2010 during their regularly scheduled meeting at the Eckert Center beginning at 2:00 p.m. A representative from The Haven, a shelter serving McCulloch, Mason, and Menard Counties will be guest speaker. Each attendee is asked to bring items to donate for the use of those seeking shelter, such as small personal hygiene items, non perishable foods, baby care products, etc. These items will be presented to the representative from the shelter.
Members of the community are welcome to this meeting and are encouraged to help victims of domestic violence to escape their abuser and begin a life free from the fear and degredation brought by this disgrace to our modern society. Shining a light on the problem is the first step.
The hotline number for the local shelter is 325-597-7644.
