On Thursday, June 21, members of Delaware Womenade presented a $10,890 check to People’s Place staff, from the proceeds of their 3rd Annual Games Day fundraiser, held at VFW Post 7234 in Ocean View on May 16.
“People’s Place would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Delaware Womenade for this generous donation, which will be used to support domestic violence survivors and their children,” representatives said.
“The People’s Place SAFE and Abriendo Puertas domestic violence programs have been privileged to work with the amazing members of Delaware Womenade since its founder Teresa Zatcoff held the first meeting almost 10 years ago. The financial support the programs have received since then has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of survivors fleeing from abusive relationships.
“Special thanks to the 2019 Delaware Womenade Games Day Committee for all the work that went into making the May 16 event so successful. They did an outstanding job of making sure that each guest had a great time and also helped raise awareness of People’s Place domestic violence programs by giving staff representing the programs an opportunity to share the services they provide. A huge thank-you and congratulations to the committee for not only doubling this year’s attendance but also for exceeding their fundraising goal!
People’s Place representatives said the donation will be used to support domestic violence survivors and their children receiving help at one of the People’s Place emergency domestic violence shelters or those living in the community. The financial support of Delaware Womenade helps assist survivors with costs associated with application fees, security deposits, car repairs, medication co-pays and many other expenses they would otherwise be unable to afford on their own.
