Details:

Since 1977, LSS CHOICES has provided counseling, shelter, crisis intervention, education, and community and legal support and advocacy to central Ohio residents facing domestic violence. LSS CHOICES is the only domestic violence shelter in Franklin County. 

 

During this time many of us feel unsafe and uncertain about the future. But for survivors of domestic violence, sheltering in place can feel familiar. Although social distancing is recommended to prevent the spread of COVID-19, abusers now have a legitimate excuse to control and isolate the survivor. As domestic violence surges, CHOICES continues to provide safety and support to survivors. 

 

Join Besa and CHOICES online as we gather virtually to provide holiday treats and words of encouragement to families experiencing domestic abuse. Using Zoom, we will guide volunteers through making homemade peppermint patties! These will be given to women and children staying at CHOICES. Volunteers are also welcome to include encouraging notes for both the women and staff at CHOICES. This is a great volunteer opportunity to do as a family! 

 

Volunteers will need to drop off off their peppermint patties on Monday, December 21st any time between 9:30am-12:00pm at Faith Mission – 217 N. Grant Avenue - please note the donation drop off is located on the side of the 217 N. Grant building on McKee Alley.
