|Thank you to Moms Demand Action NV, a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence for partnering with the Domestic Violence Resource Center to raise awareness about this issue in November.
Did you know that national studies show that when there is a handgun present in a household where domestic violence is occurring, the chances of someone being killed increases 500%? Domestic violence and guns are a deadly and all too common combination. Sadly, most mass shootings in the U.S. are related to domestic or family violence.
We appreciate Moms Demand Action NV’s donations of much needed items to benefit our residential clients. We continue to seek community support for holiday items, especially gift cards to Target or Wal-Mart (no more than $25 each please). Please also check out our wish list below for other contribution ideas, we kindly ask that all of the items be new. Given that our office is closed to the general public to reduce potential COVID-19 exposure concerns we ask you to make an appointment to drop off donations, call us at 775.329.4150.
