“Nicole Everson photography donated a photo session package valued at $600 and Trinity Martial Arts donated $500 worth of martial arts and cage fitness classes,” said Lee. “We were able to auction off items from Little Obsessions Boutique, The Silver Door, Southern Comfort Gift Boutique and Dashing Designs by Clarissa Moore.”

The Washington-Holmes Domestic Violence Task Force holds a regular meeting the second Thursday of every month, alternating between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center.

The next meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on July 11 at the Washington-Holmes Technical Center’s Student Commons.

In September they will visit Washington and Holmes County’s Board of County Commissioners with a proclamation acknowledging September as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

In October they will hold a walk/vigil and a concert in memory of loved ones who have been affected by domestic violence.

Lee also said that she is looking for anyone who would donate their house or facility as a shelter, explaining that they could receive no state funding until the shelter was successfully up and running for one year.

“We’re a 501(c)3 not for profit organization and any donation is tax deductible,” said Lee. “If there was someone that could be so kind as to donate their empty home for a shelter it would be a tremendous blessing.”
