Safe Berks volunteers wrap gifts at Berkshire Mall to support survivors of domestic violence

Safe Berks volunteers are waiting to wrap your holiday gifts at the Berkshire Mall! This effort started on Dec. 1 and will continue through Dec. 24.

“We are so grateful to all our dedicated volunteers who have donated and continue to donate their valuable time to wrap gifts to help Safe Berks,” said Beth Garrigan, Safe Berks CEO.

“Our Gift-Wrapping Table is an important fundraiser, and we hope you will visit our table with your gifts. All donations help us continue to provide free services to local survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. While most of us enjoy the safety and happiness of our homes during the holidays, unfortunately, home is not a safe place for everyone. For victims of domestic violence, home can be the most dangerous place of all.”

Safe Berks services include shelter, a 24-hour Hotline and text line, counseling, legal services, medical advocacy, and education and outreach programs. Services are free, confidential, and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
