APWC is honored to be one of the DV shelter partners receiving donations of necessities for the women residing in our Transitional Shelter such as toiletries, household cleaning products, and school supplies. In addition to these items, Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center (KP-BPMC) donated $1,000 to APWC to purchase additional necessities for our survivors. The donations are a product of the 12th Annual Domestic Violence Collection Drive in partnership with Congresswomen Judy Chu and Grace Napolitano. The collection drive is a month-long campaign which happens every October and coincides with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
“This is our 12th year that we are hosting the clothing and necessities drive. We truly believe in increasing awareness around violence within our communities, especially since family violence is a cycle that affects thousands of women and children each year,” says Maggie Pierce, Senior Vice President and Area Manager, KP BPMC. “As a healthcare provider, we see first-hand the physical and emotional impacts that violence and abuse brings upon its victims and we are committed to doing what we can to continue to heighten awareness.”
APWC would like to thank KP-BPMC, Congresswomen Judy Chu and Grace Napolitano for their generous support throughout the years. The donations have made daily living easier for our domestic violence survivors as they transition into violence-free lives.
