[Blog Update 6-7-15: Thank you everyone for coming out in record numbers! The KS store raised $600 for SafeHome and the MO store raised $200 for Rose Brooks! Thank you – see you same time next year!]
Hear ye! Hear ye! It is time once again for the annual fundraiser for local women’s domestic violence shelters.
Every year, on their anniversaries, the Avon Mega Stores hold a 3-day fundraiser for local domestic violence shelters. This year the fundraiser will be held Friday-Sunday, May 29-31, 2015. 10% of all sales will be donated to this most-worthy cause.
As part of its one year anniversary, the store in the Zona Rosa shopping center in MO raises money for Rose Brooks, the domestic violence Shelter in Kansas City, MO.
First and foremost, Rose Brooks Center provides emergency shelter to women and children escaping life-threatening abuse. Once they are safe, these families receive the tools and resources they need to begin rebuilding their life – a life built on respect, love and compassion.
We also collect old cell phones to help raise money for SafeHome. Don’t throw those toxic batteries in the trash! Donate them! Bring them to either store and we will see that they get to where they need to be. I need to update the total, but as of late 2014, we have collected over 478 outdated cell phones! What great customers we have!
