Citizens aid Safe Passage
I have a request for a great cause. Safe Passage is an organization in our area that provides safe shelter for those who have been victims of domestic abuse. Unfortunately, getting out of an abusive relationship is often difficult. Safe Passage provides those who have been abused a place to go in the short term and a safe, sustainable path for the long term.
Typically, Safe Passage receives funding from local government. This year some of those funds were cut. To help, we are putting together a fundraising effort to raise as much money as possible for the Batesville-based nonprofit. On June 6-7 a small group will be attempting to break the world record for the longest Wiffle ball game. The current record is just over 25.5 hours. I’m asking for your help in two ways:
• Contribute. Every penny of any donation will go to Safe Passage. It is a 501(c)(3) so contributions are tax deductible. Every little bit helps. Please make checks payable to Safe Passage and mail to Safe Passage c/o Julie Little, 814 Main St., Brookville IN 47012.
• Be a witness. Witnesses will have food and drinks provided for them, and can even participate as umpires if they would like. If you can commit to spending a few hours with us, that would be great! Please e-mail Julie Little at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact info and the times you can commit to being at the game, held at 10172 Reservoir Road, Brookville.
Please join us to help some of our friends and neighbors who need it the most. Thanks in advance for your help!
