The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Residents urged to show support

 

October 13, 2022



To The Eagle:

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Charlotte House, a program of St James Family Center, invites all of Wahkiakum County to show support to victims and survivors of domestic violence! Many victims and survivors of domestic violence have lost connection with their friends, family, and their community.

Around town, you may notice an abundance of purple. There are purple lights in storefront windows, purple ribbons on cars and light poles, flyers around town, table tents in restaurants. The abundance of purple is to show victims and survivors that Wahkiakum County supports them. We invite all residents of Wahkiakum County to wear purple on Thursday, October 20th to show your support and spread awareness of domestic violence.

The Charlotte House offers free, confidential services to victims and survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. We are here to support those from all walks of life. If you feel you need to speak with someone, please contact us. We are here for you!

Thank you,

Mary Cronin

Outreach and Prevention Advocate
